A Little About Myself

This is my 12th year at Demopolis High School, but it will be my 20th year of teaching.  I have a bachelor’s degree from the University of South Alabama and a master’s degree from the University of Minnesota, both in Math Education. I grew up in Mobile, Alabama and went to Murphy High School. I have had the opportunity to live in many different states, and also in Germany, Okinawa and Denmark.  I have three children, John Mark, 28, Kate, 24, and Jacob Boland, who is a senior this year at Demopolis HS.  My husband, Johnny Johnston, is a Financial Planner here in Demopolis with Ameriprise.  We met while working with the Canebrake Players and were married three years ago.


I love teaching Math, and especially Geometry.  It is a "hands-on" subject, very visual, and can help us understand and appreciate nature and art in a more informed way.  This course can really stretch your reasoning ability and help you to think logically.
