Who am I? This is a broad question, with many answers. I am the mother of three amazing children, wife of twelve years, care giver to a sweet seven month old, a Sunday school teacher, student, and most importantly a child of God, saved through the sacrificial love of Jesus Christ. I lived in the Lewisville, TX area until 1994 when we moved to Georgia where I attended high school. I was saved and baptized at fourteen, but strayed from my faith until my early twenties when I had two children and married the love of my life. In 2006, through a song on the radio, I felt a deep conviction of the holy spirit and in that moment I rededicated my life to Christ.

I hope to positively contribute to our community by the example I lead in my walk with Christ and how I live my life. Besides teaching at the high school, I will serve my community by serving in my church, in school booster clubs, and by praying for our community every day. I define success as achieving the goals you have set and being proud of the results. I will know I have achieved success in the future when, like so many of my friends, I will have students thanking me for all I did to help them be
