                         Mercer University, Walter F. George School of Law, Juris Doctorate, 1997


After practicing law for ten years (1997-2007), I changed careers to have more time with my family. I began teaching at Cook High School in August of 2007. During the 2008-2009 school year, I completed a one-year supervised practicum through Coastal Plains RESA to obtain my clear renewable teaching certificate. I am certified to teach middle school and high school, in the subject areas of social studies and English. I have taught all four grade levels of English, 9th Grade Honors Literature, Reading Enrichment, and Yearbook Journalism.
