I am so excited to be at Pelham Ridge! This is my first year teaching kindergarten as well as my first year at Pelham! Before teaching kindergarten, I taught preschool at the Treehouse Early Learning Center. This is where I fell in love with teaching, so much so, that I went back to school and graduated with a degree in Elementary Education from the University of Montevallo. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband Jason and I have three children. Daniel is a freshman at the University of Alabama, Reese is a freshman at Thompson High School and Brooks attends Thompson Middle School. My kids are involved in cheer and wrestling, so I spend most of my free time as a chauffeur! When I do have any down time, I really enjoy date night with the hubby or Netflix in my pajamas. I also love to curl up with a good book. I have always enjoyed reading, and I love to see my students get excited about reading too! One of my favorite quotes is "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go!" by Dr. Seuss. It is my desire that my students leave my classroom with a lifelong passion for learning!
