We welcome our students to another fantastic year at Jennings Junior High College & Career Prep School. As a cornerstone of the 2019-2020 school year, the students, faculty, and teachers will focus on academic achievement, building positive character and fostering positive relationships through the continuing of the weekly house meetings along with exploratory courses such as PLTW, Entrepreneurship and Construction and increasing school clubs from 11 to 22. Also, a more in-depth focus on STEM and Robotics fields will help our students achieve the expected one-year learning gain.
We are Warriors and we are stronger when we respect others and develop personal traits of integrity, honesty, and service. As you walk through our halls and gaze at the positive affirmations painted on ceilings and walls by students, you will see we are walking out our purpose because we are each destined to be great teachers and students!

As a life long learner and educator, I am extremely proud to say this is my twentieth year serving in the education profession. For this school year, I will provide oversight over Jennings Junior High School, instruction, and other duties. Previously, I have served in various capacities including principal, assistant principal, instructional supervisor, federal program coordinator, high school instructional coach and coordinator of curriculum and instruction. I have also worked as a science teacher and department chair at Sparkman High School in the Madison County (AL) School District, as well as a science teacher and after-school program coordinator at Cooper City High School in the Broward County (FL) School District.
Earning a Bachelor of Science in Education degree from the University of Auburn, I moved to Germany and began working in the Department of Defense Schools. Additionally, I have earned a Masters in Education and Biological Sciences from the University of Alabama and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership & Curriculum and Instruction with the University of Phoenix.
