I am originally from Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  I graduated from Auburn University with a B.S. in International Business and a minor in Spanish.  I earned my Master's degree and AA certification in Spanish Education from UAB.  Later, I earned my English certification making me highly qualified to teach both English and Spanish. 



I began my teaching career at Selma High School in 1987. The next year I split my teaching duties between Billingsley School and Marbury School.  In 1997 I began teaching all day at BHS.  Due to a shortage of foreign language teachers, I received training to teach online and VCI (video conferencing) classes through ACCESS and have students throughout the state of Alabama.  I currently teach Spanish I and II, 9th grade English and sponsor the Byala Staff.  


I have four wonderful children and two grandchildren.  My oldest is a Special Education Teacher at Holtville Middle School.  My son is beginning his first year of Medical School at UAB.  My twin daughters are also in college.  One is attending AUM majoring in nursing and the other recently received her Radiologic Technician and will begin the MRI program this year. At Billingsley, I love to help students become independent learners and avid readers.  I am passionate about teaching and introducing the Spanish language and Hispanic culture to juniors and seniors.  I love teaching at Billingsley School!
