I moved to Huntsville in 2005 and was lucky enough to obtain a position at Mountain Gap, where I have remained and hope to stay for many years to come. During my span at Mountain Gap, I have taught reading, English, and math to sixth grade students with learning differences, worked as a collaborative teacher, and began teaching 4th grade this year. This is my favorite position so far!
I have been fortunate in that I have a loving and supportive family. I married my high school sweetheart thirty years ago. We have three sons, ages 22, 23, and 26. Now that the boys are older, my husband and I spend time traveling, going to movies, boating, skiing, and dining out. I have a career that I love and a wonderful, supportive family. Life is good!
