Meet our academic directors
Director of Science
I taught 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 pittie/lab mix puppy named Roxie. 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!
