where I started my journey in public education 23 years ago.  I taught at HMS for 14 years, 
teaching all three grade levels and most every academic subject.  For the last nine years, I have 
been at Lowndes High School as a reading specialist and English/Language Arts teacher.  

I am married with three children and one grandchild.  I have lived in Lowndes County for 23

I earned my B.S. in Special Education from Valdosta State (College).  I added on certifications in 
Learning Disabilities and Middle Grades Education.  I completed my M.Ed through Nova 
Southeastern University in Reading Education and completed certification as a Reading 
Specialist.  After moving to LHS, I added Secondary English certification and Gifted
