Bio

 

I grew up in LaFayette, AL and graduated from LaFayette High School. After high school, I attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where I became fascinated with the education field. While teaching language arts at Lanett Junior High, I was voted teacher of the year for the 2005-2006 and 2012-2013 school years. I received my master’s degree in School Counseling in May of 2013 from Columbus State University. In addition to being the school counselor, I am the co-sponsor of the Lanett Junior High Student Council.
