I always knew that I wanted to be a teacher and it was a dream that came true when I received the call in the Spring of 1974 to come to Albertville High School. I have worked with several extra-curricular activities since coming to AHS. Among those activities are serving as Student Government Advisor for thirty plus years, Homecoming activities coordinator, cheerleader sponsor, prom sponsor, Sophomore Class sponsor, Senior Class sponsor, Coronation Ball committees, coordinator of all student elections, calendar coordinator and faculty representative for AEA just to name a few.

I have enjoyed my career and I receive great satisfaction at the end of the day when I can look back and say I truly made a difference in the life of a student.

I certainly have the number of years of service that would allow me to retire, but at the present time, I am still having fun!

My husband and I live in Albertville and at some future point look forward to retirement. 

Albertville High School holds a very special place in my heart. I will treasure the memories forever. To borrow a quote from my son, Dr. Jon Alan Smith, "Once an Aggie-Always an Aggie!!
