I have been here at PJHS for 20 of my 23 years as a teacher, and I have taught both English and electives such as theatre and art. I am also the
theatre sponsor/director. I am an Oregon girl (Go Ducks!) who now considers herself a Southerner after living in Alabama for the last 27 years!
I've been married for 23 years to James Strickland, a science teacher and coach at Prattville High School, and I have two children. Syndal, 27,
is a stay-at-home mom for my grandson Liam(5) and granddaughter Sarella(2). My son-in-law, Justin, works as a project manager for International Paper.
My youngest daughter Skylar is a seniorat Prattville High, and she is a singer/guitar player who is in show choir. I have two
dogs, Molly and Tessa.

In addition,I am on the board of Prattville's Way Off Broadway Theatre and the vice-chair of the Alabama Conference of Theatre's Theatre for Youth division.

I enjoy theatre, reading, laughing, watching CSI-style shows, cooking, travel--and football, of course!
