Degrees and Certifications:

I received both a Bachelor and Master degree in education from the University of North Alabama. I am beginning my seventh year teaching at Saraland. At Saraland, I have taught Math and Social Studies. I have previously taught 7th grade math and special education in Citronelle, Monroeville, and Cherokee, AL. I have two children--Pete (age 16) and Chip (age 10). I spent most of my life in North Alabama. We have enjoyed our many new experiences as a family in the Mobile area. We have become regulars at area beaches, Saraland sporting events, USA Jaguars ballgames, and my boys' games. Chip attends Saraland Elementary and loves alligators, basketball, baseball, Fortnite, Minecraft, and Roblox. Pete attends Saraland High School and plays basketball. I enjoy gardening, Alabama football, Kentucky basketball, and spending time with my family. Go Spartans!!
