Heat Advisory

Due to the heat advisory in the forecast for today, HCS will be operating under our heightened awareness weather protocols.  The Heightened Awareness protocols will remain in effect throughout the duration of the heat advisory. Our schools will take extra precautions to ensure the safety of our students by limiting outdoor activities and keeping students hydrated.  Our middle and high schools will be utilizing the Alabama High School Athletic Association guidelines for outdoor heat for all our students involved in any extracurricular activities, such as sports, band, etc.

My husband and I love living in Huntsville, Al. I am originally from northern Illinois. My husband and our 3 children moved to LA (lower Alabama) in 1986. We were fortunate to make the move to Huntsville in 1996, which allowed our 3 children to graduate from Grissom High School. At this time my hobby is remodeling our house. We love spending time with the five grandchildren, who also reside in Huntsville.

I am excited and honored to begin my 15th year of teaching at Grissom High School. During this school year I am teaching Chemistry and Physical Science. Previously, I taught Science for 11 years at Columbia High School. During that time and my time at Grissom, I taught IB Chemistry, AP Chemistry, Honors Chemistry, Chemistry, Physics, Physical Science and PLTW IED. I also sponsored/coached the Columbia High School robotics team, FRC 5858, Golden Hurricane. I am excited to be a mentor for the Grissom Robotics Team 3319 this year. Before Columbia, I taught at Huntsville High and Bob Jones in Madison City.
