Experience

I have been employed at Oxford High School since August 2000. I have taught grades 9 through 12 in all core subject areas.

While attending college at JSU, I was involved in the special friends program at Piedmont Elementary. I  interned in several classrooms in the Oxford School System while completing my undergraduate degree, and I completed my student teaching at Cleburne County High School.

While employed at OHS, I have received training in a variety of programs, including SRA Corrective Reading, Alabama Reading Initiative, Language!, Strategic Instructional Strategies, and V-Math. Through  partnership with Vocational Rehabilitation I served on the panel for Resource Mapping for Youth in Transition with Disabilities.

 

I am the department chairperson for the special education department. In 2015 I received the Educator of the Year Award from the Alabama Department of Vocational Rehabilitation for our region.

Bio

I attended high school in Clay County, where I graduated from Mellow Valley High School. Mellow Valley was a 1A school, and my graduating class size consisted of 32 students. This school was closed in 2004, but is now operating at a new location as a Christian Academy.

I have worked in the Oxford School System since August 2000. My class assignments have ranged from the CARE program to co-teaching in the general classroom. I have been one of the staff members assigned to our Freshman Academy since it was established. I truly enjoy working with freshman and I am proud to be a Yellow Jacket! 

This year, I will be working with grades 9 and 12 in language arts. This is an exciting change for all of us, and I anticipate a great year is in store!

I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Dennis, for 18 years. We still reside in Clay County near family and friends.
