I was born and raised in Martin, Georgia.  I came to Franklin County in 1998, and taught agriculture at Franklin County Middle School for seven years before accepting my current position at Franklin County High School.  I received my Associates Degree in Agriculture from Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton.  I received my Bachelor's Degree and Masters Degree from Clemson University in Agricultural Education.  After six years of teaching, I decided to further my education by attending Piedmont College, where I obtained an Educational Specialist Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.  This is my nineteenth year teaching Agriculture, and I hope to be here for many more years to come.

My philosophy is to help students believe in themselves through building their self-esteem and attitude.  I want to instill the love that I have for the field of agriculture in the students.  I want to motivate each student to reach his or her highest potential.  I want to show each student that I truly care.  Through their belief in themselves, my students will achieve success in life. 

I determined what I want to do with my life when I was in the seventh grade.  I was not the smartest person or richest person, and I had many set backs along the way.  I have often found myself face down in the mud many times.  However, I set a goal for my life, worked hard and never gave up.  I hope that my students can look at me as an example of someone who has proved successful at setting and accomplishing goals, and who continues to strive for improvement.
