Education

I am an alumni of Hamilton High School, class of 2007. I graduated with honors and number 7 in the top ten of my class. I then obtain my Associates degree from Bevill State Community College May of 2009. After Bevill, I continued my education at the Univeristy of Alabma where I studied mathematics as my minor to my major in Criminal Justice. When I graduated in December of 2010, I graduated with a job off at the Tuscaloosa County District Attorney's office. In Aug of 2012, I decided I missed the world of mathematics and went back to school to peruse my dream as a Secondary Mathematics teacher at the Univeristy of North Alabame. I graduated May 2014 With my Masters in Secondary Eduation, Mathematics. 



Experience

Upon graduation, I recieved a teaching position in Birmingham, AL at a Jefferson county school known as Clay-Chalkville High School where I taught Geometry. After working there the first semester of 2014-2015 school year, I found a position opening closer to home in the Pickens county School system. I taught at Aliceville High school the remainder of the school year. During the folloowing summer, I recieeved a job offer at Berry High School, where I began the 2015-2016 school year. I was at Berry for a short time because my calling was in Huntsvilly City School System at Grissom High School. I remained at Grissom High School from October 2015 until the end of the school year. I served as a member on their pacing guide and benchmark commitee in Algebra I for their school district. Over the summer, my dream of teaching in Franklin County finally came through. Now, I am here at Vina High School.

I also teach as an adjunct instructor for Bevill State Community College on Monday and Wednesday nights. I have been teaching at Bevill since August of 2013.
