Educational Experience

I am a high school graduate of Hazel Green High School. After high school, I attended Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee where I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and went on to teach 9-12th grade English at East Nashville Magnet High School. While teaching high school English in Metro Nashville Public Schools for seven years, I attended Tennessee State University in Nashville, Tennessee earning my Master's of Education, Educational Specialist, and Doctoral degree in Educational Leadership & Supervision; I also graduated from Vanderbilt University's Principal's Leadership Academy. After completing my seventh year of teaching, I was promoted to Assistant Principal at Cane Ridge High School in Metro Nashville Public Schools, where I led the Academy of Architecture and Construction for two years, which was accredited and deemed a model academy by the National Career Academy Association. Afterwards, I accepted a position in Madison City Schools in September of 2014 as The Academy and Alternative School Principal. I am excited to begin my fourth year in Madison City Schools and look forward to a great and productive year!


I believe all students can succeed! The ultimate purpose of education is to create a learning environment that is safe, student friendly, nurturing, and provides various opportunities for students to experience success while experiencing a curriculum that allows for academic,  physical, social and emotional growth with the ultimate goal of helping all students to become productive citizens. Furthermore, I believe in being a lifelong learner, being firm, fair and consistent. Also, the three A's are critical to any student's success: attendance, achievement, and attitude. Moreover, your talent can take you where your attitude cannot keep you!


I grew up in Toney, Alabama, am the youngest of 4, married to my high school sweetheart Charles, and we have two daughters Addysyn and August! My hobbies include shopping, spending time with friends and family, reading and going on vacation.
