Welcome to my Webpage!

     I have been teaching at Oneonta High School for the past seventeen 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 is currently serving in the U.S. Army and is stationed at Ft. Wainwright in Fairbanks, Alaska.   Hunter graduated from OHS in 2013 and is a junior at Jacksonville State University.  He is studying to become an engineer.   Emily currently attends Oneonta High School.  She is a varsity cheerleader, a performance team dancer with Dale Serrano Dance Studio, and an avid baseball fan!  We are also actively involved at Oneonta First Baptist Church. 

     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 France and Germany in the summer of 2015.
