Bachelor of Science in Psychology - Spring Hill College 1991

Master of Arts in Elementary Education - Spring Hill College 1993




I have 10 years of experience teaching 1st, 2nd, and 5th grade.

I have 15 years of extensive training and experience as an instructional coach for K-5th grade teachers. I served as a district ARI literacy coach during the 2014-15 school year. As a literacy coach, I provided coaching support to multiple schools to refine instructional practices through professional development, the coaching cycle, collaborative planning and resource development with the goal of preparing all students to be college and career ready. In 2015, I joined the Old Shell Road Magnet School's faculty as an instructional partner. I am serving as the school's Title I facilitator again this year.


I am so excited to welcome another school year at Old Shell Road Magnet School as an instructional coach.  My 25 years of experience in the Mobile County Public School System include 10 years of teaching and 15 years as an instructional coach.  

This year I will continue to support the teachers and students of Old Shell Road School through curriculum planning, professional development and instructional coaching.  In addition to these responsibilities, I will serve as our school's Title 1 facilitator and PST Chairman. I believe that Old Shell Road Magnet School is the home of the most dedicated, loving, and professional teachers, administrators, and staff.  It is a pleasure to work with the students, parents, and community that make up the Old Shell Road Magnet School family.

I look forward to another successful year working with the administration, faculty, students, and parents to ensure that all of our children are successful and prepared for the next step in their academic careers.
