My experience

My background

My Bachelor’s degree is in biology with a chemistry minor. My Master’s is in Secondary Education with a concentration in biology.

I grew up in Scottsboro. I actually attended this VERY school MANY YEARS AGO!

I attended Brownwood Elementary, Page Elementary for 5th&6thgrades (NOW where the Central Office is located), Scottsboro Junior High School, & Scottsboro High School (which is NOW Collins Elementary). I have attended SEVERAL colleges – Auburn University, UAB, East Carolina University, Athens State, &The University of West Alabama!

I worked in Medical Research roughly10 years before I became a teacher!

  • I’ve been teaching for 9 years. This is my 10th year of teaching, but my first with Scottsboro City Schools. I have taught in the Jackson County School System for 9 Years!

  • My first year of teaching, I taught ALL sciences. I then taught 9th grade Biology at our BIGGEST rivalry – North Jackson – for 8 years.

My family
My Family

  • My husband works with The City of Scottsboro as a Communications Officer with Jackson County 911 and Scottsboro Police Department. His name is Wayne. He loves to exercise – running, weight equipment, etc.

  • I have a six year old daughter, Hannah Grace, that attends Caldwell Elementary. She is in the First Grade! Right now, she loves Disney Princesses (Elsa and Anna the most), Monster High, art, gymnastics and dance.

  • We live here in Scottsboro in the County Park area. I am NOT going to tell you exactly where so my yard doesn’t get rolled! Ha HaHa!

  • Currently, we have no pets. We had a cat, Smokey, that was half Siamese and half “it”. He sheddedTOO much, so we compromised with Hannah Grace and told her if we got rid of Smokey, we could put a fresh water fish tank in her room and a salt water fish tank in the playroom downstairs. It will be a “Finding Nemo” tank! Hannah Grace got fresh water fish for her birthday, but they all died in two weeks. We buried “Princess” the Red Top Ocra in the back yard. The tank was overpopulated!! We are trying to start a salt water fish tank that has the fish from “Finding Nemo” in it as well. We still have a LONG way to go! Ha HaHa!

Hobbies interests

  • Cross stitching

  • Reading just about anything – The Immortal Instruments Series (City of Bones), The Clockwork Series that goes along with the Immortal Instruments Series, Twilight Series, The Vampire Diaries, ALL Stephen King novels, mysteries… You NAME it!!!

  • Photography – I like to try to learn to take good pictures

  • Recipe collecting, cooking, canning (We put up 72 quarts of green beans, 100 ears of corn, and 34 quarts of cream corn this summer!)

  • Music – and YES… I listen to Ariana Grande, Iggy Azalea, John Legend, Snoop, Eminem, Maroon 5, Katy Perry, and other artists of the same genre! Some, but very little, country. Occasionally jazz and classical. I guess I like it all!!!

Class subject
Class Subject

  • Our class will be primarily be dealing with physical science concepts.

  • Several assignments will also span other subjects, such as math, reading, and writing. There will be times that history will be incorporated as well.

  • Physical science covers chemistry and physics.


  • Will be assigned throughout the week, but not necessarily every night.

  • I will try my best not to assign homework on Friday night or over holidays.

  • No Homework Sheets – If you forgot to do your homework or did not bring it, FILL THIS FORM OUT!!! Mom and Dad will not know about this unless they come for a conference about your grades!! REMEMBER… I grade your homework. I WILL KNOW if you DO NOT fill this form out!!! There WILL BE A PENALTY if you do not fill this form out!


  • Your class starts at a SPECIFIC time!!!

  • If you are in the door by the time the bell rings, I will NOT count you tardy!

  • You should be in your seat and working on your Bell Ringer by the time the bell rings. If there is a problem getting to my class, please discuss it with me. We may be able to work something out!
