I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of North Alabama and my Master’s from the University of West Alabama. I will graduate from UNA with an Ed.S. degree in Teacher Leadership in July of 2013. I hold a National Board certification as a Middle Childhood Generalist educator and am also a certified trainer for the Alabama State Department's learning exchange. Before coming to Kilby I taught 4th grade for 3 years. I am heading into my 5th year as the Media Specialist at Kilby and I have the best job in the world. The best part about my job is being able to work closely with every student and every teacher in the school.


I have been married to Josh for 9 years. We have two of the sweetest, roughest, toughest girls. Hadley is 5 and will be in Kindergarten at Kilby and Tess is 3. She will be attending the CDC. My family will welcome a new addition this fall. I can't wait for my son to be a Kilby Kid!  My husband is a professional rodeo cowboy so we spend most of our time traveling to rodeos, team ropings, and our newest event, team pennings.  We have 4 horses, 3 dogs, chickens, a donkey, and a billy goat named Spud.  


Other than spending time with my family and riding horses I read every chance I get.   I also enjoy playing ANY sports and I am a self proclaimed ping pong champion!
