Over the last 25 years I have been a Tiger (Minor High School), a Mountie (Shades Valley High School) a Husky (Hewitt-Trussville High School) and now I am very proud to be part of the Demon Family.  I am originally from Birmingham, Alabama and received my B.S. degree in Secondary Comprehensive Science Education (1990) and a M.A. in Physics Education (2018) from the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!).  One of the most challenging and rewarding experiences for me as an educator was achieving National Board Certification in AYA Science (Physics) in 2014. My husband and I have been married for 30 years and have three wonderful children.  Cate is a junior at UAB majoring in materials engineering and minoring in PHYSICS!  Blake is a freshman at  Huntingdon College and plans to major in Business Administration and play goalie for the lacrosse team.  Our youngest, L, is a sophomore in high school and will be participating in choir and theater.
