I am beginning my 17th year in education and my passion for teaching and learning is stronger now than ever!  My classroom experience includes 6 years in M.S. and 5 years in E.S.  This year will be my 6th year as an assistant principal.  My education includes a B.S. Psychology from CMU, M.S. in Education from NGCSU, Ed.S from UWG, and I am currently a doctoral student at Mercer University in Curriculum and Instruction.  I am highly qualified with certification as follows: Educational Leadership, Early Childhood, ESOL, Reading, Special Education, and Teacher Support Specialist.   
A breakdown of where I have taught and for how long is as follows:
  • 6 years of middle school (2 years at Henderson Middle in DeKalb and 4 years at Chestnut Log/HAVEN in DCSS)
  • 5 years at Factory Shoals Elementary School (2 years in the classroom and 3 years as Lead Teacher in HAVEN)
  • I am beginning my 6th year as an assistant principal (my first 5 years were at Burnett Elementary).
I am thrilled with the opportunities that await me at my new school, North Douglas, and am proud to be a part of the Stingray team!
