I am currently in my 18th year of teaching 5th grade. I have been at McBride Elementary for 16 of those 18 years. I am married to Matthew Carpenter who also works in the MSCS school system, and we have two children. Mattley is 14 years old and is a 9th grader at Muscle Shoals High School. She is a MSHS JV cheerleader and a member of the CCA competition cheer team. Brody is 6 years old and in prefirst at Howell Graves Preschool. He is a typical boy who loves playing outside, anything sports related, and seeing what kind of trouble he can get himself into...he's very mischevious! We also have a dog named Brooks.
I love to travel, shop, and spend time with my family. I also enjoy monogramming and creating things for others in my free time...I have a little t-shirt hobby that keeps me very busy at nights and on the weekends. We are all big Alabama Crimson Tide fans...Roll Tide!
