I grew up in Americus, GA and always knew I wanted to be a teacher! I enrolled at Georgia Southwestern in August, 2004 to earn a teaching degree and could not wait to begin my teaching career! I started teaching kindergarten in December of 2007.
I married Micah Simpson in June of 2008 and moved to Birmingham. Micah has served as a college minister and campus pastor. Now he is the executive director for New Water Ministries.
Micah and I had our first child, Daniel, in April of 2013! Daniel loves trains, playing ball, and watching James Spann talk about the weather! We are also expecting another baby boy named Nathan in March of 2017!
Things I love: Chick-fil-a, exercising, Bible study, spending time with family and friends, and chocolate! I also love learning! Last year, I went back to graduate school to obtain an Education Specialist's (Ed.S.) degree from UAB. Go Blazers!
