I love teaching and learning! Having worked with the state for 4 years and then as a public school teacher for 26 years, I felt it was time to retire but not fully ;) My education includes a Bachelors degree from Mercer University, Masters degree from Georgia College and State University, Specialist Degree from Georgia Southwestern State Universtiy, and a Doctorate degree from Walden University. I am a National Board Certified Teacher and next month I will complete the English Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) endorsement. I am the proud mother of two grown sons. In my spare time, I love to read, garden, travel and nap.
