I am excited to be part of Pike Road Schools. This 2022-2023 school year will begin my 22nd year of teaching. I spent many years working as a substitute teacher and then decided to return to school to become certified and licensed. I obtained a BS degree in Biology from Jacksonville State University. My education coursework and certification was completed at the University of Tennessee at Martin. I also obtained a MS in Administration and Supervision from the University of Tennessee at Martin and graduated in 2010. I spent 9 1/2 years teaching in Tennessee and we returned to Alabama in 2011. I began teaching at Gadsden City Schools in 2011 and moved to the Etowah County School System in 2016. I have just completed my MS degree at the University of West Alabama in Instructional Leadership. This is my 2nd year at Pike Road High School. For the 2022-2023 school year, I will be teaching 9th grade Biology. This should be an exciting year. I am also a true believer in being a life-long learner. I recently began working on my EdS at the University of Alabama in Teacher-Leader. I want my students to recognize the need to continue learning.
Should you ever need to contact me, please feel free to call the school and set up a conference or email me. I am truly excited to be part of this school system and Pike Road High School.
