This year will mark my 17 year teaching. I began my career in Mount Vernon at Belsaw Middle School. At Belsaw, I taught 6th grade American History, 7th grade Civics and Geography, and 8th grade World History. The following year I was invited to take part in a new and exciting program called Transformation at Calloway-Smith Middle School in Mobile. While at Calloway-Smith I taught 7th grade Civics and Geography, served as the Chair of the Social Studies Department, and participated on the technology committee. I have been teaching at Dunbar Creative and Performing Arts Magnet School since 2014. I am thrilled to be a part of this wonderful institution and Mobile tradition.
