About Me
I was born and grew up in West Texas and Eastern New Mexico.  I have lived on the east coast and have taught in 6 states. Currently, I am in my 30th year of teaching mostly at the middle school level.  I love teaching American history and helping students to connect current events to our past history and to facilitate critical thinking as it applies being an American citizen and part of a global society. It is my goal to help students be informed about such important issues we face such as immigration, the middle east,  and respect for rights of all people.  We work using the team model to help 6th grade students adjust to middle school and to foster each individual student's academic and social progress.  I love singing and have always been involved in school, college, and church choirs. I have participated in several community musical and opera productions.  I have been a member of the Alabama Symphony Orchestra Choir for the last 6 years.
