Though this is my 13th year in the world of public education, it is my second as a school counselor as well as my second at Caldwell Elementary School.  All of the previous 11 years were at Scottsboro Junior High School as a 7th & 8th grade Social Studies teacher.


I grew up in Section, AL, where I went to school, K-12.  After high school, I attended Northeast Community College, the University of Alabama, and Jacksonville State University, where I received my B.S. in Secondary Education.  Later, I earned a Master's degree in School Counseling from the University of West Alabama.  I am married to Jason Arnold (7th grade Social Studies teacher at Scottsboro Junior High School) and have three awesome children, Reese Murdock (9th grade), Griffin Murdock (4th grade - Caldwell), & Lola (1 year old as of Nov.26,2016).  I like to spend time with my family, play sports, read, water ski, and swim. I attend church at Riverside Community Church.
