I attended college at JSU. It was there that I received my bachelors in elementary education with a collaborative degree in special education.


I have taught second grade for one year at Wellborn Elementary. I then came to Oxford elementary where I have taught kindergarten for one year and am now on my second year. I love my kindergarten babies and couldn't imagine teaching any other grade level.


I grew up in Douglasville, Georgia. I have three sisters and we are all extremely close with eachother and our parents. I came to Alabama to go to school at JSU. After spending 5 years here I fell in love with the area and decided I wanted to stay in Alabama and find a school to teach at when I graduated. I met my husband Tommy Beard not long before I graduated college and we now live in Jacksonville, Alabama. We just recently welcomed our sweet baby girl into the world on July 7, 2016. I am passionate about teaching and believe it is my calling. Other than teaching, I love spending time with my family and spending time outdoors.
