This school year begins my seventh year of teaching, but it is my first year at Charles F. Hard Elementary School.  I have taught in the Jefferson County School District and the Birmingham City School District.  My family is from Bessemer, and I am thrilled to be apart of the Bessemer City School District. (We are the BESS!)

I was born in Birmingham, AL. I have two beautiful daughters (ages 1 and 4).  I enjoy doing volunteer work, traveling and taking classes to learn new ways to express myself.

I love to read and write, and I want to guide my students to become successful communicators.  My goal is to instill a passion of life-long learning to my students.
