This is my 8th year teaching in public school, and my third year at South Dale Middle School.  I am a graduate of Ashford High School.

Morgan (24) is the Social Media and Marketing Director at SunSouth John Deere. Savannah (21) is currently in school at Wallace and works at SouthEast in the lab.  Zach (19) lives in Enterprise and works at Sam Boswell Honda. He and his wife are expecting my first grandchild in September.
