Welcome to my Webpage!

     I have been teaching at Oneonta High School for the past twenty years, and I am truly thrilled to be teaching at my alma mater.  I graduated from OHS in 1977 as Valedictorian of my class with plans to enter the business world but soon came to realize that my heart was in education.  After attending the University of Alabama in Birmingham, I achieved my dream of becoming a teacher, and in 1998 I returned to Oneonta to join the English Department.  I later earned by Master's Degree in Language Arts from the University of Alabama.

     I live in Oneonta with my husband Randy and our three children: Kelly, Hunter,  and Emily.  Kelly graduated from OHS in 2009 and attended Marion Military Institute.  He served in the U.S. Army and was stationed at Ft. Wainwright in Fairbanks, Alaska, for three years before returning to Alabama.   Hunter graduated from OHS in 2013 and is a senior at Jacksonville State University.  He is studying to become an engineer.   Emily graduated from OHS in 2016 and currently attends Mississippi State University where she is a member of the Pom Squad.  

     I enjoy traveling and, along with fellow teacher Jennifer Bowman, take students to Europe for "field trips."  We have been to France, England, Spain, and Italy in the past, and we plan to visit Italy again in the summer of 2019.
