Principal's Bio


Image for Principal

I am a native of Limestone County.  I grew up in the East Limestone community and attended high school there.  After completing my degree at Auburn University, I lived and worked in Auburn for several years.  WAR EAGLE!!  Today, My husband, Lee, and I live in the East Limestone area on my family's farm land.  I am a proud mom of three wonderful daughters.



I have been an educator for over 23 years.  My teaching experience includes first, third and fifth grades.  I enjoyed teaching at all these levels.  The children at each level are a joy and have unique qualities that make that grade a pleasure to teach.  The Johnson faculty and students honored me with the recognition of Teacher of the Year during the 2002 - 2003 school year. In 2003, I received National Board Certification as a Middle Childhood Generalist and renewed my certification in 2013.  My previous teaching assignment was Reading Coach at Johnson Elementary.  This gave me experience working with teachers modeling best practices lessons, providing staff development, and collaborating with the reading teachers.  I also held the position of Designated Assistant Principal while working at Johnson Elementary.  This position allowed me to gain valuable experience in administration duties working with experienced administrators. In the fall of 2010, I took a new role as assistant principal of Owens Elementary School and worked there for five and a half years.  During this time, I learned so much from the faculty, students, and parents at Owens and gained valuable experience as an administrator.  In December of 2015, I was blessed to be named principal at Piney Chapel Elementary.


Auburn University:  Bachelor of Science in Education

University of North Alabama: Master of Arts in Educational Administration

Samford University:  Educational Specialist Degree in Educational Administration

I am a lifelong learner through professional reading and attending conferences to further my knowledge.  The students and teachers that I work with also teach me valuable lessons on a daily basis!  I am blessed to be a part of a wonderful group of people.

If I can ever be of assistance to you, don't hesitate to contact me. Only through collaboration between parents and the school can our students be successful.
