Business and Computer Science
Education: I graduated from Rockmart High School and then received my Bachelor of Science in Business Administrative Systems from Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. I also attended Gupton-Jones College of Funeral Service in Decatur, Georgia and received an Associate of Science in Funeral Service. I attended The University of West Georgia in Carrollton, Georgia and received a Master of Education in Business Education. I received my Education Specialist in BrainSMART Teaching & Learning from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
About me: I worked for eight years in my family’s business before I had children and decided to go back to college for Business Education. I began teaching in 2002 and taught two years at Haralson County High School. I taught two years at South Paulding Middle School, Paulding County, before moving to Woodland Middle School in Euharlee in 2006. My children Anna & Hunter began attending school in Bartow County when I began teaching at Woodland Middle School. This is the beginning of my 18th year of teaching Business & Computer Science. I am currently taking Computer Science classes to earn a Computer Science Endorsement.
In addition to my job as Business & Computer Science Teacher, I create WMSE monthly newsletters that are sent home through Remind, posted on the school’s website, and copies are available in the front office & counselor’s office.
As a little girl, I always played teacher and office with my childhood best friend. Teaching Business Education is a combination of what I always said I wanted to be when I grew up. I tell my students that I was not a straight A student growing up but that I could do anything that I wanted to do and set my mind to accomplishing that goal. I like to teach students about computers and teach them skills they need for their future in education and careers. I teach students in grades 6, 7 & 8.
I love to spend time with my family, going to the beach and traveling to new places. I like to kayak, watch Georgia Bulldogs play football, and shop. I have 2 children: Anna who graduated from Woodland High School in 2018 & Hunter who is beginning his sophomore year at Woodland High School and he plays in the band.
