I have a BS in Education/French K-12 from the University of Alabama in Birmingham and spent one year at the University of Reims in France. 


This year starts my 21st year of teaching and my 11th year at Huntsville High School.  I've taught at Ben C. Rain (Mobile Alabama), Buckhorn High School (New Market, AL), Slocomb High School / Geneva County High School (Slocomb and Hartford, AL) and Catholic High School (Huntsville, AL).


I was born and raised in Madison AL.  I started taking private French lessons in the 6th grade. The summer of my 10th grade year, I went to France and stayed with a family for a month.  I spent 5 summers with them and ended up spending a year at the University of Reims. I came back to the states my senior year of college and graduated from UAB.  I have been married 23 years and have three children ages 21, 18, and 15.
