I have completed my first year at Ben Hill Middle School and my 34th year all together. I taught music for 21 years before moving to fifth grade and I taught 5th grade for 12 years at Ben Hill Elementary School. I graduated from Fitzgerald High School with honors and four years later, graduated from Valdosta State College with a Bachelor of Music degree. I am so excited to be teaching at Ben Hill Middle School. My favorite part of my job is the look on my students' faces when they enjoy reading a book.
