Meet our academic directors
Director of Science
I have been teaching eighth grade science for 10 years at Smokey Road Middle and I am very excited to be over here at CEC teaching eighth grade science! I am married and we have a son named Silas and a bulldog named Champ. I have a bachelor’s in middle grades education math/science from The University of West Georgia and a Master’s in psychology with a concentration in child and adolescent development from Capella University. I’m sure many of you will hear stories about me...I’m a bit crazy and eccentric, but I love what I do! I am looking forward to a great year here at CEC!
Director of English Language Arts
My husband and I live in Newnan with our sons and dog. I have a diverse educational background including a bachelors in middle grades education, a masters in human resources management and development, and a juris doctorate. I have always been of lover of language arts and literature. It is my desire to broaden my students reading experiences, and to help them develop an appreciation for writing and grammar.
Director of Mathematics
I live in Peachtree City with my four children. I received my bachelor's degree in middle grades education from Wesleyan College in Macon, GA, my master's in secondary education from Georgia Southern University, and am currently working towards my doctorate (Ed. D) in Curriculum Studies through GSU's hybrid program. I am certified to teach all core subjects through 8th grade and mathematics in grades 6-12. I have experience teaching in a variety of settings (public, private, and special needs) and grade levels. I love math, but my passion is for students’ overall educational growth. I am a lifelong learner, always seeking ways to better meet the needs of each individual student that I am blessed to serve.
Director of Georgia Studies
This will be my eleventh year in the Coweta County School system. I spent my first 10 years in the county teaching Georgia Studies at Smokey Road Middle School. I am certified to teach History for grades 6-12 and I have a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership. I was a teacher, a football coach and Dean of Students in Florida for 26 years before moving to Senoia. My wife Judy and I live in the country outside of Senoia with our cat, Killer. Our daughter Juli is a Senior Advisor to the Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Crimes at the United States Treasury Department in Washington, D.C. I love Crimson Tide football, fishing in our lake, a good book, and slow smoking Bar-B-Que.
I want to provide an interesting, challenging and fun learning environment for my students. Every day I want them to be excited about learning Georgia History, the history of our wonderful country and what they can do to become successful members of our community. When they get home from school each day I want the first thing they say to their parents to be “wait until you hear what I learned today in Georgia History!”

This school year will be my tenth year teaching, and I am looking forward to working with students at CEC.

Math is my favorite subject, and I have two daughters who both teach math in Fayette County. My husband and I live in the Sharpsburg area, and I enjoy yard work and spending time with family.
