University of Alabama-Huntsville: Elementary and Collaborative Education

University of West Alabama: Library Media Specialist



I began my career at Providence Elementary.  During that time I taught 5th, 4th, and 2nd grades.  I was also out of the classroom one year as the media specialist and two years as IB Coordinator and math coach.  Providence Elementary was officially named an authorized IB (International Baccalaureate) World School during my time as coordinator.  My math team also won first place at the district competition.  I am very excited to be in the library once again, and I look forward to collaborating with all of the teachers and students at JC!


I have two boys, Brayden (5) and Camden (2), who are the light of my life. My husband, Brandon, works at TOC and frequently sees some of our students passing by. We also have 2 boy dogs, Charlie and Nanuq.  My whole family consists of blue eyed boys except me, and that includes the dogs!  I played collegiate softball, and love any type of sport (especially if they are played outdoors). GO JETS!
