I graduated from Faith Academy High School. I went on to study Elementary Education at the University of South Alabama where I earned my certification in K-6th grades. I also have a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from South Alabama and an administrative degree from the University of West Alabama.


I began my teaching career at Maryvale Elementary where I spent two and a half years as a fifth grade teacher. I moved from Maryvale to Robbins for five years where I taught 5th grade as well. I left Robbins and went to Griggs Elementary School where I taught 5th grade language arts for three years and then taught 5th grade reading and language arts. This is my 4th year at Turner. My first year I taught 5th grade reading and writing. The past 3 years I have been the Title 1 Facilitator and Reading Coach.


I am happily married to Sam Lassiter, the PE teacher here at JE Turner. We have three children. Our 11th grade twins and our 10th grader attend MGM School. My son plays football for the high school and his sisters play volleyball. We are an extremely busy family and I wouldn't have it any other way! I love watching my children play sports and spending time with my family. In my spare time, I enjoy reading and going to the beach. You will also find me watching all kinds of different sports on TV with my husband. I am an Alabama fan, ROLL TIDE! I am thrilled to be working at JE Turner and am excited to work with all the incredible students and families!
