It is with great pride and excitement that I will be continuing my stay at Whitesburg as the newly appointed Principal of Whitesburg Elementary School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school that places student learning at the forefront of all decisions. Together, our mission is to inspire, engage, and empower all students in becoming creative problem solvers, active citizens, and life-long learners through rigorous curriculum and relevant instruction within a supportive environment.

I am a native of Tuscaloosa, AL (Roll Tide!), and have been an educator for the past 19 years. I have served in Arkansas, Kentucky, and the great state of Alabama in both elementary and middle school. I have been fortunate to serve in Huntsville City Schools for the past 11 years.

Beyond my work as an educator, I am most proud of being a wife and mother. I have been happily married to my high school sweetheart for the past 33 years. We have two daughters and four grandchildren.

I am eager and excited to begin what promises to be the best year ever. This year is going to be amazing as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections. It is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors – faculty/staff, students, and parents – are excited to be here!

I look forwarding to learning, growing, and celebrating as a Whitesburg Elementary family.
