I am very fortunate to have lived my entire life in Hoover. After graduating from W.A. Berry High School, I earned my degree in Early Childhood Education from Samford University. Since then, I have earned a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education and certification and an Educational Specialist Degree from the University of Alabama in Birmingham. I am currently pursuing my doctorate in Educational Leadership from Samford University.
I began my career teaching early intervention at Green Valley Elementary School. After serving in that capacity for a semester, I taught kindergarten for a year at Bluff Park Elementary. After staying home to raise my family, I returned to Bluff Park where I taught 2nd grade and 1st grade. I served as Interim Assistant Principal at Greystone for the 2013-2014 school year and was hired as Greystone's Assistant Principal in May 2014. It is an honor to have been selected to serve as Principal of Greystone in July of 2016.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Scotty, and we have four wonderful children. Charlie lives in Atlanta and works for Johnson Development Associates as a civil engineer. William and his wife Jami also live in Atlanta. He works for Brasfield & Gorrie as a civil engineer. Rebecca is currently working towards a degree at Jefferson State Community College and works as a communications specialist for SHIPT. Kathryn is in culinary school at Jefferson State Community College. Family is a huge part of my life and I cherish every minute I get to spend with them!
Greystone Elementary is a school filled with exemplary teachers and staff, and wonderful students. I enjoy spending time reading to classes, listening to students read to me, playing math games with students, and experiencing school alongside our students. After school, you might catch me reading a book, playing board games with my kids, or working puzzles.
