General Information:
  • I was born and raised in Hiawatha, Kansas.I moved to Athens, AL in 2011. I have been teaching at Sparkman 9 since 2012. Borderline perfectionist overseeing yearbook publication. Very appreciative of my students!


  • I am married to my best friend Jeff, who is a History teacher and Cross Country coach at Athens High School in Limestone County. If life wasn't busy enough, my husband and I had TWIN BOYS March 11, 2016 - Easton & Owen. They are ALWAYS keeping us on our toes. #EandOonTheGo


  • I love reading and writing <---My answer when my students ask why I would want to teach English.
    I also love quick-witted humor, getting lost while traveling, early 90's Country music, telling myself I have had enough chocolate, and yes, Harry Potter.
    ---To my Students: I had a Gryffindor back pack my 9th grade year of high school. Cool level achieved. 

I am very blessed to be a part of the Sparkman family. Go Senators!
