Though my degree was in criminal justice, I had the opportunity to experience so much through my time with GBI.  I learned a great appreciation for customer service, whether it be helping my co-workers or helping a victim of a crime.  This same type customer service is exactly the same in the classroom, I'm just servicing children, our future!


I have completed many classes and trainings that give me a deeper understanding of ways to handle a classroom and strategies to use on a daily basis to strengthen the minds of children.


I am continually learning about new ways to improve my classroom and the ways of reaching children.  


Hello!  Let me tell you a little about me...


I am a Byron, Peach County, GA native and graduated from Peach County High School.  My husband, Derrick, and I met in high school.  We have two wonderful children, Abby (14) and Ayden (4).  Abby is an 8th grader who loves to play softball and dance.  Ayden is a wide-open boy who loves to be outside and play any ball he can.  I love being with my family and doing things.  You could find us many nights and weekends on a ballfield somewhere watching Abby play softball.  Ayden is just getting into organized sports.  I learned to play the trumpet and piano when I was young, and now play the piano at my church every Sunday.  


When I began college, I had all intentions of going into some sort of law enforcement.  I completed an internship with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and became employed full-time as an Investigative Assistant after graduation.  My goal was to become a Special Agent with GBI; however, I found myself with different priorities once my children came along.  My mind continued to think about teaching and being able to make a difference in all children's lives.  In 2012, I made a career change through the GaTAPP and became a 7th grade Math teacher at Crawford County Middle School.
