I am originally from Hazel Green, AL and graduated high school there in 1994. I earned a Bachelor's degree in instrumental music education from the University of Alabama in 1998 and began teaching in Tennessee. Over 19 years in the state I was a school level teacher of the year three times, and named a Tennessee Governor's School Outstanding Educator. I also earned my master's degree in music education from the University of North Alabama.
I have one amazing son and one spoiled beagle. In what little free time I have I watch Alabama football, cheer my son's wheelchair basketball and sled hockey teams, perform in various ensembles, travel as much as possible, and try to always remain positive and grateful.
20 years in education.
