At Clark Shaw I teach Girls' 6th-8th grade PE, coach Girls Basketball, and Boys Track. I love being active and healthy. During my spare time I enjoy running, going to the gym, and competing in road races. I believe the importance of being active and healthy should be instilled into students early. I enjoy teaching students the importance of finding their talent or sport they enjoy. I want my students to love PE, have fun, and learn about being healthy.
I have a Bachelors in Sports Management/Leisure Studies, another Bachelors in Physical Education grades k-12, and a Masters in Physical Education grades k-12 all from the University of South Alabama. I have also passed the Health Praxis making me certified to teach Health grades 6-12.
I have taught PE at the following schools: Mobile Christian k-5 2008, Taylor White k-5 2014-2016,and Cottage Hill Christian Academy k-8 2016-2018. I also subbed at various schools in various subjects while obtaining my degree in 2009 and 2013. I was a paraprofessional at George Hall until hired at Taylor White as a full time teacher in 2014.
My student teaching was completed at Hankins Middle School and Mary B Austin. I interned at Team Focus (Group for Boys without Fathers) and am a volunteer counselor at Camp Rap A Hope (Fun for Kids with Cancer).
I have coached Track & Field and Cross Country at the following schools: Mobile Christian, Murphy High School, Baker, and Cottage Hill. I have also officiated many track meets on the high school and college levels with the Port City Officials Association.
