Welcome Back to Rockmart Middle School!
I am thrilled to be beginning my 11th year
in Polk County Schools. In the 2017/2018 school
year I will be teaching 6 and 8th Grade Language
Arts.

I am a graduate of Cleburne County High School
in Heflin, Alabama.  I received my Bachelor of
Science and Master's degrees from Jacksonville
State University.  I began teaching in Oklahoma
City.  I then moved back home to Alabama and
worked for several years in Haralson County.  I
am excited to now work for Polk County.  RMS
has the GREATEST students, parents, teachers
and administrators.

When I think back over how education has changed
since I began teaching, I'm amazed.  Technology is
a game changer, and I believe when students do not
learn the way you teach, you change the way you
teach. However, I still require paper pencil assignment
because that is also a valuable skill that needs to be
taught.

Students learn and make progress better when you
have mutal respect.  I work daily to make my students
understand that I'm learning with them.  That no one is
perfect and when we make mistakes, we use them to 
make us stronger.
