It is my pleasure to be teaching your children this year. I would like to tell you about myself. I graduated from the University of North Alabama with a BS in Physical Education and a Minor in earth and space science. I then took a teaching job at St. Joseph Catholic school in Florence, AL. I taught science and physical education there for six years. I then moved to Nashville and accepted my current position at Christ the King School. In 2008 I earned my masters degree in Administration and supervision. I have served as the Athletic Director and the Physical education teacher for 19 years.
I am very excited about our new facilities and all the possibilities to grow our current athletic and physical education program.
