Hello,  I am an Intervention teacher at West Elementary. I taught for 27 years at Good Hope Primary School. Retired for two years to help with grandbabies. After two years at home, I taught intervention at WPI. This is my second year at West Elementary and I absolutely love it here. Everyone has been so welcoming. 
I have been married to my husband Randy for 42 years. We have two wonderful daughters and seven grandbabies. Which we absolutely adore.
Outside of school, I enjoy cooking and spending time with my family. I love watching the cooking channel, gardening, and Alabama Football. ROLL TIDE!
