Welcome to First Grade!  I have been teaching for 22 years, with 10 of those being at Glenwood.  I am married and have one son that attends Glenwood, one son attending Southern Union, and the other son attending Auburn.  I also graduated from Glenwood many years ago and Columbus State University.  I enjoy cooking, spending time with family, and ,of course, teaching.
