I am entering my 19th year as a special education teacher. Throughout these years, I have taught every grade level with the exception of ninth grade. High school is my absolute favorite! I earned a BS. Ed. in Elementary Education from Athens State University in 1993 and a Ma. Ed. in Special Education from Western Carolina University in 2003. My husband and I have 6 children ranging in ages from 27-15, 4 grandchildren, and 2 dogs. I love the outdoors and spend a lot of time at the lake. My husband has made me quite the outdoors woman and I often can be found fishing or traipsing in the woods alongside him.
