James A. Shanks Middle School - Present



I am thrilled to say that this is my 26th year working in Gadsden County Schools.  I was employed as a paraprofessional and have been teaching for 20 years.  I was born, raised and educated in Quincy, Florida and graduated from James A. Shanks High School.

Reading has always been an essential element of life for me.  Teaching literature and writing allows me to share the love of reading with young minds.  I hope that my passion for the subject as well as my training as an educator will help open the minds and doors of opportunity for students.  It is my hope that students will be positively influenced by what I have to offer, just as I was influenced by my English Teacher.
