“As a teacher, seeing the smiles of the children each day brings joy,” she said. “The ‘aha’ moments when a child gets something for the first time and being able to witness their social and academic growth makes teaching enjoyable and exciting.”

The Lowndes County native is an active member of the New Hope Christian Church and also tutors students in the Lowndes County community.

When she is not teaching future leaders, she enjoys traveling, shopping and spending time with family and friends.
