*** Every Student Empowered *** Every Student Succeeds ***


As a little girl I wanted to become either a nurse or a teacher. After discovering that nursing was not my thing, I decided that teaching was definitely for me. I began babysitting at an early age. From there, I went on to teach bible classes for church with my mother. While in college I worked with after school programs and summer camp programs around Montgomery. This is my fourteenth year teaching second grade here at Wetumpka Elementary School, and I absolutely love it! I am blessed to work at such a great school.


I was born in Midland, Texas. Raised with two brothers and one sister, I gained a great knowledge of organization, education, and discipline. I moved to North Carolina when I was four and that is where I grew up. After graduating from high school, I moved to Montgomery so that I could attend Faulkner University. There I met Chris Brodie. A year after graduating, we were married. He has completed law school and is working for the state. We have one son and one daughter, who are absolute blessings to us. We have one dog- an eleven year old maltipoo named Rush.
