This is my 29th year as an educator. All twenty-nine of those years have been in the Americus City/Sumter County School System. This is my tenth year at Sumter County Middle School. I am currently teaching 7th grade Language Arts. This is my 27th year teaching Language Arts.


I graduated from Manchester High School in Manchester, Georgia. I received my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Georgia Southwestern State University. I received my Specialist degree from Troy State University. I am the proud mother of two sons, who are twenty-six and twenty-two, both of whom are in college, majoring in two different fields of medicine. My husband is also an educator, who coaches varsity football and wrestling. Horseback riding and reading are two of my favorite hobbies.
