This is my twentieth year of teaching in Winston County Schools -eleven at Meek and eight at Winston County High. Before that I taught at Walker College in Jasper, AL. I graduated from Addison High School in 1982. After high school I attended Wallace State, Calhoun Community College, Northwest Junior College, Shelton State Community College, and UAB. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Language Arts from Athens University in 1997 and a Master's degree in Library and Information Studies in 2002 from the University of Alabama.
