I am privileged to have the opportunity to work with your children this year. To share a little about me; I was born and raised in Lyons, Georgia. I have four children and thirteen grandchildren. I attended Brewton Parker College in Mount Vernon, Georgia, where in 1996 I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education. In 2007, I obtained a Masters of Education in Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment from Walden University. And, in the Summer of 2017, I obtained an Educational Specialist in Educational Leadership from Valdosta State University. I have worked in the education field for twenty-six years, and continue to be educated by the vast diversity of our youth each year.
