I've been a passionate, highly motivated and tenacious secondary science educator for 26 years. I've had the opportunity to teach all levels of students as well as most science courses. My Bachelor of Science degree was earned at Shorter College and then I returned to add on my teaching certificate (1995). My first teaching position was at Rome High School where I received New Teacher of the Year in 1996 and Teacher of the Year in 2011. My Masters degree is in Biology from the University of West Georgia (1999). I have a Specialist Degree from Berry College (2003) and a Doctorate degree from The University of Alabama (2010). Both of these degrees are in Administrative Leadership. After 17 years at Rome High School, I moved with my husband to Warner Robins in 2012. I taught at Howard High School for 2 years before joining the Houston County School System in 2014 at Warner Robins High. This will be my first year at Perry High School.
When I'm not in the classroom, I enjoy baking as well as many outdoor activities including cycling, gardening, hiking and fishing. As a member of the Georgia Neurosurgical Institute Cycling Team, I compete around the state. My state championship titles include Road Racing (3 times), Time Trialing (2 times) and Cyclocross (2019).
One of my major beliefs is that learning can be fun and I am looking forward to an awesome year as a Perry Panther!!
