I have been teaching since 1996 after I graduated from the University of Montevallo. My first eight years of teaching were at St. Pius X where I taught first grade. The next eight years I taught first grade and one year of Kindergarten at a title 1 public school in Tallahassee, FL. I am so happy to be back in the Catholic schools, especially St. Dominic since I attended here as well. I’ve been teaching Kindergarten at St. Dominic since 2012 and I absolutely love it!
