I have been teaching since 1992 so that is over 23 years. My undergraduate degree is from Auburn University main campus in Public Relations Speech/Journalism. I worked for five years in retail sales before I quit to go back to school. I went back to AUM for my Master's degree in 1990 then I began teaching in Elementary Education.
I have two children: Laura, who now has a JOB working with Marc Fisher Shoes in New York City and Matthew - a senior at Auburn University studying filmography.
This was an eventful summer for me - I did things that I had never done before. I went on a cruise, visited another country, and saw the beauty of Alaska along the way. Steve Spangler is a name you will probably hear from you students as they come to my class, was the person who got the science end of the trip together making it that much more exciting. I spent time exploring the beauty of Alabama, too - seeing Mt. Cheaha (the state's highest point) and going to one of my favorite places in north Alabama - the Space and Rocket Center. Oh, yeah, I did learn some things along the way!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE going to Dauphin Island Sea Lab, the Space Center in Huntsville, and Lanark (which is right next door in Millbrook). I have to add Alaska and Canada to this list- words do not do it justice though. We have so many beautiful areas in this state and the nation I wish that everyone would be able to see them as well.
