Hello My Name Is...

ELL Teacher

I am excited to be at Hueytown Middle School this year.  I split my day between HMS and Brighton School.  I help our English Language Learners acquire skills in their second language (English).  I also teach an elective, English Intervention.

I am originally from Chicago, IL.  I moved to Birmingham four years ago with my family.  I have a Bachelors Degree from the University of Illinois and a Masters Degree from Northern Illinois University.  I have completed doctoral coursework at the University of Alabama.  This year, I am working on my National Board Certification.  I love to travel, run, and practice my Spanish with my students and daughters at home.
