This is my first year teaching 1st grade at Wetumpka Elementary. I previously taught kindergarten at Coosada Elementary for five years and 5th grade at Millbrook Middle School. I was chosen as the Elmore County Teacher of the Year for 2015-2016 and the Millbrook Middle School Teacher of the Year for 2014-2015. I am so excited about teaching 1st grade and giving my students a strong foundation for the future. It's going to be an incredible year! I'm originally from Destin, Florida. I moved to Montgomery to attend Huntingdon College, but met a cute Prattville boy at Walmart and never made it back to the coast. My husband, Chris, and I have been married 22 years. We have three children (Avery-21, Owen-19, and Jack-11). Avery is a senior at Troy University in Troy majoring in elementary education, Owen is a freshman at Auburn University Montgomery majoring in nursing, and Jack is moving up to 6th grade. In addition to spending time with my family, I love exercising, pinterest, shopping, and Jesus.
