Education

I am proud to say that I have been a St. Clair Saint all my life!  I attended Odenville Elementary throught St. Clair County High School.... I graduated in 2003 and began attending University of Alabama at Birmingham where I received a Bachelors of Social Work with a minor in Criminal Justice.  From there I continued on to UAB to earn a Masters of Early Childhood and Elementary Education. 



Experience

I have been BLESSED with the privilege of being able to teach at Odenville Intermediate School upon earning my degree.  This is my 5th year of teaching… two years in 4th grade and this being my third year in 3rd grade. 



Bio

Let me tell you a little bit about myself!  I was blessed to marry my best friend, Mr. Joshua Carden, on June 21st of this year.... so I am a newlywed and it is an adventure :) I am proud to say that I have been a St. Clair Saint all my life!  I attended Odenville Elementary throught St. Clair County High School.... I graduated in 2003 and began attending University of Alabama at Birmingham where I received a Bachelors of Social Work with a minor in Criminal Justice.  From then I continued on at UAB to earn a Masters of Early Childhood and Elementary Education.  This is my 5th year of teaching…. two years in 4th grade and this being my third year in 3rd grade.  I was BLESSED with the privilege of being able to teach at Odenville Intermediate School upon earning my degree!  I could not ask for a better school, students, or parents.

My goal as a teacher is to be a role model to each of my students.  I hope each day that my students and all that I meet understand how important they are and see the potential within themselves and strive to achieve their greatest success and most amazing dreams!  I pray I can play just a small part in raising a generation of kind, caring, lifelong learners, as well as, respectful and responsible young adults.
