Originally from Columbus, Georgia, I moved to North Alabama in the summer of 1999. I have taught at the college level as an adjunct, full-time instructor, and senior lecturer for almost 21 years as of 2021. I have been actively involved in the state affiliate of the National Council of teachers of English since 2006.
