  I am so excited to have joined the Sparkman team this year as a U.S. History teacher.  I earned my BS degree in Business Management and Marketing at The New York Institute of Technology.   After 16 years in small businesses, corporate and international businesses; I decided to follow a dream of mine and become a teacher.  I know it might sound a tad cliché, but I wanted to do something that gave my life meaning and purpose.  I went back to school and earned my teaching certificate from The University of West Florida and began teaching in Crestview, Florida 6 years ago.  I can say after my short 6 years in teaching that my life has purpose, it has meaning and I have worked harder these past 6 years then I ever did in business.  Teaching is truly a labor of love and I wouldn’t trade a single day.

I have two beautiful daughters, Hope and Haley and a sweet little boy that I consider my own, CT.  Hope graduated last May and is headed off to the U.S. Navy to work in communications.  Haley is a freshman at Grissom and wants to attend NYU for drama.   CT is 2 and loves to go camping, wrestle with his daddy and play outside.   I love to spend any time with my girls that they are willing to spend with their mom. Andrew and I enjoy camping, hiking, exploring, entertaining and time with friends.  I enjoy reading, and baking when I have time.  On the weekends you can find us all either outside or in front of the TV watching college football or binge watching some great Netflix series.

I am also new to Alabama.  I spent my early childhood in Ohio, home is Virginia and I come to  Alabama by way of Florida.  So far I love all that Huntsville has to offer.  The area is beautiful, tons of things to do and see and is, by far,  the friendliest state I have ever lived.  Everyone here at Sparkman has been so pleasant and so willing to show me the ropes and make sure I feel welcome.  Again, so happy I joined this team,  and I look forward to getting to know all of you.
