I have twenty years of experience teaching secondary English in grades 7-12. I began teaching 11th grade average and honors English at Montgomery Central High School in 2006. This year I am teaching 11th grade honors, AP Language, and psychology. I am also the English department chairperson and AP Language lead teacher. Prior to coming to Montgomery Central, I taught in Alabama and in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee. I graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor's degree in English and psychology and a Master's degree in Educational Leadership/Administration. I have two children who attend Montgomery Central High School. I am very happy to be a part of the Montgomery Central family. Roll Tide!
