I am excited to begin my 20th year at the Academy, and my 23rd year in alternative schools!
There is no place I would rather be than at the Academy. Alternative education has become my passion and I am determined to give students the experiences they need and deserve, while helping them with their decision-making process. My goal as an educator is to give students a voice and empower them to be the best they can be because I believe all of my students, like the Phoenix, can SOAR to new heights!
One of the best things about being an educator in Liberty, is the impressive community support. I am honored to continue to do good work for our Academy families and others in need.
When not teaching I am a member of the Soroptimist, Liberty chapter – a charitable organization that meets the needs of families in our area. I also enjoy golf, travel, reading, community service, attending sporting events and spending time with my husband and fur baby!
