Personal Background

I am from Buford, Georgia and moved to Decatur, Illinois after getting married to my husband in June 2019. We have two dogs, Max and Bella. I love being outside, whether it’s to take the dogs for a walk or playing golf with my husband. I also love singing. My husband plays guitar, so I always enjoy the times we play and sing together. My free-time is also spent in my craft room. I’ve recently been sewing masks and trying my hand at watercolor painting. I taught high school Chemistry for eight years when living in Georgia. This past year I part-time taught Algebra 1 at Richland Community College and substitute taught in several of the local school districts. I am looking forward to being back in the classroom full-time teaching science.
