Education & Experience

  • BS in Secondary English and history education, University of Alabama, 1992
  • MS in Secondary English, University of Alabama in Birmingham, 2004

I taught 11th & 12th grade English and world history at Minor High School from 1992 to 1995.  I have been at Oak Grove High School since 2002, and I have taught 8th grade & 12th grade English, as well as AP English Literature.  

I am very excited about teaching ACT Prep this year. I am looking forward to helping students think critically in order to improve their ACT scores so they can be awarded more scholarships. I will also help prepare students for real world writing, reading, and speaking opportunities, as well as introduce them to relevant life skills.


I have been married to the love of my life, Jeff, since 1992.  I have two precious teenage children who attend(ed) Oak Grove High School.  I love to sing in my church's praise band, read all different types of literature, play on the river, and camp with my family and friends.  I love teaching at Oak Grove High!
