My teaching career spans twenty-one years and includes a wide variety of content and levels of English and writing instruction. I began my career at Mary G. Montgomery High School, teaching English 9-12, AP/Dual Enrollment English 12, Creative Writing, and Leadership I and II. After the birth of my second child, I decided to leave MGM to work at the University of South Alabama, where I taught English Composition 101 and 102, Developmental Writing 014, and Language Arts and Skills 100 for eight years. Even though I loved the flexibility my teaching schedule that USA offered me, when a position teaching English at SHS for the new Satsuma City Schools became available, I knew that I needed to return to my roots. Thus, I have taught English 8, 9, and 10 for the past six years at SHS and look forward to teaching English 11 and AP Language and Composition at SHS this coming school year.
I am an alumnus of Satsuma High School and live in the community of Satsuma. My husband, Kevin Rawls, also teaches at SHS, and he currently coaches the boys and girls varsity and junior varsity tennis teams for SHS. I serve as the assistant tennis coach, as well as the Hi Q coach and the National Honor Society sponsor. Our family loves living in Satsuma and is very excited about the city school system and the possibilities for excellence that we have in our small town. Our daughter Emma is an alumnus of SHS, and our other two children attend school here and play music and sports for our schools, so we are truly a Satsuma family!
