Master's Degree in Elementary Education - University of South Alabama - Summa Cum Laude, Summer 2005 


This is my seventeenth year teaching in Mobile County.  I spent one year at Griggs Elementary, and ten years at Dunbar Creative and Performing Arts Magnet School.  I was Dunbar's Teacher of the Year for the 2011-2012 school year.  This is my sixth year teaching at O'Rourke Elementary School. I have taught all subjects in the past, but I am currently teaching reading and language arts.


I grew up in Mobile, Alabama, and decided that I wanted to be a teacher many, many years ago when I was in the fourth grade.  My husband and I enjoy spending time with our precious little boy and our two crazy dogs.  I also enjoy reading, cooking, painting, horseback riding, movies, and music.  I truly love teaching, and I feel so blessed to be at O'Rourke!
