Meet The Teacher


I have my bachelor's degree in Collaborative Education for the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). Go Blazers! I also have my master's degree in Educational Leadership from Concord University in Athens, West Virginia.




This is my eighth year teaching special education. I have taught from K-5th grade resource, inclusion, and self-contained. The majority of my experience has been with resource and inclusion of grades K-5th. 



I was born in Birmingham, Alabama and grew up in Hoover. After graduating from Spain Park High School, I attend UAB and got my undergraduate degree in Collaborative Education in December of 2011. I moved to West Virginia with my husband and begin my career working in McDowell County Schools. After 5 years in West Virginia, we decided to move back to Alabama to be closer to our families. I enjoying spending time with my family, cooking, eating, and reading a good book. I'm very excited to begin my journey at Daniel Pratt Elementary School with the wonderful 5th grade team!
