WELCOME BACK!!! I am so excited to have you in my class and know that we are going to have a fantastic year. My hope is to get to know each of you as an individual this year because you are not just a typical person, but someone wonderfully made. So that you can get to know me, I want to tell you a little about myself. I graduated from Greenville High School in 1998 and attended Jacksonville State University "GO GAMECOCKS" where I obtained a bachelor's degree in Business Marketing. After graduation, I worked in the business world for several years before deciding to go back to school to get my teaching degree. I graduated from Auburn University in 2005 with a Master's Degree in Business Education. On a personal level, I am married with two wonderful children; Will is 4 years old and Kate is 1. My other sweet baby is my dog, Gypsey. For fun I enjoy any type of outdoor activity; especially kayaking, swimming, camping, and going to the park with the fam! I also love love love to read, my two favorites of all time being the Harry Potter series and the Twilight series. I don't have much time to watch TV but my favorite things to DVR are Criminal Minds, Design Star, any type of Christmas movie, and of course Days of Our Lives. Yes, I am a soap opera junkie!!!
