I received a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and English from Samford University, after transferring from Auburn University (War Eagle!) Later, I received a Master's in Psychology from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.


This is my 29th year at HTHS, teaching psychology, dual-enrollment psychology, and AP psychology, along with some English classes throughout the years. I have sponsored the highsteppers and majorettes and been the prom sponsor at different times. I also teach part-time at Jefferson State Community College.


I have been married to Dave Manley for 42 years and have two daughters and four grandsons from four years of age to sixteen! We also have a Corgi named Angel.  I enjoy traveling, cooking, and having adventures with my grandsons.
