Subjects Taught
4th Grade



I am a 4th grade teacher here at Council Traditional School. I feel privileged to be working along side some other great educators. My goal as a teacher is to reach as many young people as possible and to give them a sense of hope that they can be whatever they choose to be as long as they are dedicated and hard working. I believe that communication between parents and the teacher makes success and goals reachable. I too believe that failure should never become an option; and that every child is special in his or her own way.






I am a certified teacher in the state of Alabama. I have taught since 2007 in the elementary arena. I hold a bachelors degree in Sociology and a Master's of Arts in Elementary Education.


I am a mother and wife. I am very hard working, independent, and believe that educating students is my calling. I love people and love to lend a helping hand to those who are in need and who can appreciate help. I was born and raised in Mobile, Alabama. Attended W.D. Robbins (elementary), K.J. Clark (junior high), and Mattie T. Blount (high school). I am a proud Leopard and glad to be a part of the alumni experience.

I am very motivated to learn and to teach others.My family and I reside in Semmes, Alabama where we enjoy the quiet of the country atmosphere. I am very family oriented;love vacationing; shopping is my addiction, and eating out is a personal enjoyment! To really know me is to love me!
