About Me


  • 7th Grade Civics/Geography
  • 8th Grade World History


  • Bachelor of Science in Education, Social Science- Samford University
  • Masters of Arts in Education, High School Education- UAB


While I am not a native Alabamian, I have lived here for most of my life. I grew up in the Birmingham area and graduated from Shades Valley High School. From there, I moved down the street to Samford University where I studied to become a history teacher. I was blessed to find employment at the school where I student taught and enjoyed 7 delightful years teaching history to high school students. During that time, I married my high school sweetheart, Wilson Whittington, and began working on my master's degree at UAB. My husband and I now have two wonderful daughters that keep us quite busy with their assorted activities. Some of my favorite hobbies include reading, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
