I am married to Craig Garvey and we have a daughter, Amber Garvey, who is nineteen.  We live in Anniston with our dog, Shilah.  We attend both Sacred Heart Catholic Church and the First Methodist Church in Anniston.  My favorite past time is to be outdoors, whether it is at the beach, fishing, hiking, or riding a bike.  Once, I rode 90 miles in one day!

I am currently in my 28th year of teaching at C.E.Hanna Elementary School where I teach Flex Reading and 6th grade Mathematics.  My previous teaching career includes teaching 6th grade Reading, Mathematics, Language Arts, and Science.
