I grew up in Tuscumbia and am very proud to still call Tuscumbia my home.  I am very blessed to be married to my husband Tommy.  We have been married for 21 years.  We have also been blessed with four wonderful children:  Kierstan (20), Lauren (18), Brayden (16), and Landon (14).  We have a rescue dog named Alice Ann, a golden retriever named Luna, and two cats named Echo and Charlie B.  I love spending time with my family, traveling, listening to music, reading, being a mom, and teaching. I love to run in my spare time.  I have run 16 half-marathons and 6 full marathons.  I am a Christian, and I am an active member of Calvary Baptist Church in Tuscumbia. This year, I will be teaching ninth grade English, Honors English 9, Creative Writing, and Senior Advanced Composition and Speech. I serve as the Key Club Sponsor at DHS. I have also been coaching Cross Country at DHS for the past 10 years and happy that Deshler has had state qualifiers in Cross Country each year. I am excited about the upcoming XC season and looking forward to working with DHS students in my classes this year.


I graduated from Colbert Heights High School in 1988.  I attended the University of North Alabama and graduated with a B.S. degree in English in 1992.  I received my master's degree from the University of North Alabama in 1995. I have been very blessed to be teaching at Deshler High School since 1993.


I began my teaching career at Deshler in 1993 right after I graduated from college. This year, I am beginning my 27th year of teaching at Deshler.
