I graduated from Georgia Southern University with a B.A. in History in the Spring of 2005 and stayed in school as a graduate assistant to complete my M.A. in History in the Spring of 2007. Originally a Biology Major when I stepped foot on campus in the Fall of 2001 because I wanted to be a Pediatrician. That was short- lived because Chemistry 1145 about killed me and when my advisor signed me up for four more science classes, I knew this was not for me. Graduating with degrees in history with no education course, I had to go through the T.A.P.P. program to become a teacher. I applied to dozens of schools, but was offered a job at Albany High School where I worked from the Fall of 2007 until the Spring of 2011. I completed my T.A.P.P. courses at Albany State and taught at AHS for four years. I started at Perry High School in the Fall of 2011 and have worked there for nine years. During my time at PHS I started my first three years as a Co-Teacher, and the last six years I have taught US History to Juniors. My extracurricular activities include coaching sports for the most part. I have coached swimming all nine years, serving as the head coach eight of those years. I coached soccer for six years as an assistant coach. I coached girl's JV volleyball for one year and football as the kicking coach and 9th grade lbs coach for the past two.
