I am married to Patrick Haughaboo and we have two girls: Alice (10) and Lucy (6). Before moving to Decatur, I lived in the Atlanta, Georgia area and worked at Wheeler High School in Marietta (an Atlanta suburb) for six years. I am a graduate of Auburn University (B.S. English Education) and Georgia State University (M.Ed. English Education).
I enjoy hanging out with my family, running with my friends, and traveling during breaks from school.
I am currently reading The Crafty Reader by Robert Scholes.
I enjoy running 5k, 10k, and half marathons. I completed my first marathon (26.2 miles) in the Rock n Roll New Orleans Marathon on February 28, 2016. It was very difficult, but also fulfilling. I am always training for a new race. Right now, I am preparing for the Rock n Roll Half Marathon in New Orleans on February 10th.
My favorite place to visit is New Orleans because of its proximity to Decatur and the richness of NOLA culture.
