Welcome to our class web page!
I am proud to be an employee of the Etowah County School System and teacher at Glencoe High School. As an alumni of the school in which I now teach, I am excited to give back to the community that has given so much to me. It is my desire to help students develop both their academic standing, as well as their character. Go Jackets!

    Today is the Beginning of a New Day...
    God has given me this day to use as I will.
    I can waste it or use it for good.
    But what I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.
    When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever...
    leaving in its place something I have traded for it.
    I want it to be gain and not loss,
    good and not evil,
    success and not failure,
    in order that I shall not regret the price I paid for it.
