After graduating from LCHS, I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Mississippi University for Women, a Master’s Degree from Auburn University, and an Education Specialist Degree from Troy State University. My first teaching position was in Russell County, Alabama in first grade. I obtained National Board Certification while teaching first grade at Aberdeen Elementary School.
