We just celebrated our 21st year of marriage and have been residents of Madison for 20 years.

I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Athens State University Highly qualified K-6. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Hygiene from the University of North Alabama. I am currently working on a Master of Education in Library Media at the University of West Alabama. It has been a joy to be the 6th grade science teacher at Madison Elementary school and I look forward to this new opportunity.
