A WARM HELLO TO YOU!
I grew up in Lilburn, GA (a suburb of Atlanta), the youngest of 3 girls. My late parents, Jane & Clyde, raised me to be confident and passionate about life, to love the Lord with all my heart and to give 100% to everything I do. I love bringing genuine joy & energy to the classroom. Anything goes to get & keep students' attention in my classroom, like a 30-second jamming session to a great song since music is always playing, a quick movie clip when illustrating a point and an occasional run through the raindrops as we stop to smell the roses! I thrive on using every moment as a teachable moment and presenting relevant and applicable information. Teaching is my thing and I LOVE IT! I look forward to sharing my love of teaching and learning to inspire future student teachers at Enterprise High School.
My husband, Rob, and I met while at Auburn University. We've been married since December 2002. He is a native of Enterprise and graduated from Enterprise High School in 1994. Rob is a Fisheries Biologist Supervisor and works for the Alabama Department of Conservation & Natural Resources. We have 3 precious children: Graham (EHS Varsity Tennis), Avery (Jazz, Hip Hop & Musical Theater) and Ellie (Jazz, Hip Hop & Ballet). Our 4-legged child, Sadie, is a sweet GoldenDoodle. We are active members of First Baptist Church Enterprise, where we teach Sunday school to middle and high school students and chaperone numerous youth trips. My family really enjoys spending time together! We are passionate about what our kids enjoy: tennis & dance. We also love RV camping, playing board games, dominoes with neighbors, boating, tubing & LAUGHING OUT LOUD whenever possible.
I enjoy teaching at the high school! It's significant for many reasons: our son, Graham, is now a student at EHS, it's so special to teach at my husband's alma mater, but the most significant reason is that my Mom taught Home Ec. She actually had John Schneider (Bo Duke from The Original Dukes of Hazzard) in her 1960s Home Ec class in Atlanta! She'd be tickled pink if she knew I was doing this!
I'm honored to be a part of Education & Training, FACS and Career Tech Education at Enterprise High School! GO CATS!
