Welcome to preschool at Collier Elementary.  I am so excited to be your child’s teacher this year! We will have tons of fun in class while learning about the five developmental domains in our preschool curriculum.  Let me tell you a little about myself.  This is my second year teaching at Collier, but my 16th year teaching overall.  Preschool is my favorite age to teach! I have lived right here in Mobile all my life, and I even graduated high school right around the corner at Faith Academy.  I have been married to my husband Doug for 11 years and we have one son, Mason, who is 4.  I’m so excited that Mason will be in Mrs. Pullen’s class this year, who is also a pre-k teacher at Collier.   I enjoy reading and listening to music when I'm not teaching.  When I slow down long enough to watch a movie, I love comedies and musicals most of all!   I was a member of a local performing dance troupe in Mobile for six years, but these days you’ll just find me dancing with the kids in class.   I hope you can join us for some of our special events days this year as we make new memories and well as new friends!
