I am proud to be investing in the students of Auburn school, in my home community. I was raised in Auburn and attended Auburn School. After graduating from Logan County High School, I continued on to Western Kentucky University. My undergraduate degree is in Agriculture Education. I have a masters degree in school counseling and a middle school science endorsement. My first four years of teaching, I taught high school agriculture in Carroll County. I taught one year of high school science and coordinated career and technical education at Franklin Simpson High School, upon returning to Southcentral Kentucky. I was then recruited to teach middle school science and begin a middle school agriculture program, along with FFA, at Franklin Simpson Middle School, where I taught for 5 years. In 2013, I returned home to Auburn to teach science and begin a agriculture program. As you can probably tell, I have a very non-traditional background, as a science teacher. My unique background gives me a distinct advantage in the classroom to teach from a real-world perspective.
