This is my 14th year to teach at Prattville Junior High. I have been teaching in Autauga County since 1997 and I am hoping for many more years here. I went to Leeds High School and graduated from Auburn University. I have two children that are products of Autauga County schools, too, and they both live and work in New York City. My daughter, Laura, who is married to a wonderful man, Dan Schnur, from New York, works for Marc Fisher shoes. My son, Matthew, works for the Rockville school district in Long Island, New York. Covid -19 caused him to be furloughed last year and he has now gotten this new job.
I love to travel and was able to visit Maine last summer to examine the Audubon Camp of Hog Island and Dayton, Ohio, the home of the Wright Brothers. I have fantastic adventures to bring back to the classroom this year and hope to experience many more in the years to come.
This year I am the virtual teacher for Science in the 8th Grade. I will be teaching General Physical Science, Advanced Physical Science, and the elective Forensic Science. In addition, I have one traditional class on Gray Days.
