Welcome to my teacher web page! I am a seventh grade English teacher at NJMS, the best school in Jefferson County. I grew up in Gardendale and graduated from Gardendale High School. Both my parents are proud alumni of Mortimer Jordan High School. I have a B.A. in English and secondary education and a master's degree in gifted education from Samford University. I am the mother of a very energetic and fun-loving kindergartener. This is my tenth year at NJMS. I am excited about the 2016-2017 school year.
