I am originally from Oakland, California but did most of my schooling in St. Louis, Missouri. I am an alum of the University of Missouri-Columbia with a degree in business management. After graduation I moved to Atlanta where I spent the last 16 years! I worked in the insurance industry for 8 years before my work in the training department led me to teaching. I went back to school, obtained my teaching certification and spent the last 8 years teaching high school math at Alcovy High School. I moved to Madison just this past summer and look forward to making it my new home. I am so happy to be a part of the Sparkman team and look forward to getting to know everyone this school year.
