I have been employed with Dale County Schools since 1996. I worked as an instructional aide for two years. In 1998 I taught 5th and 6th grade reading and spelling, and later moved to 3rd grade where I am currently teaching.


I am a life long native of Midland City, and I am married to my high school sweetheart, Joe McDaniel. We have three children; Bailey, 12, Maddie, 10, and Joley, 7....who all attend G.W. Long. I am an active member of Bethel United Methodist Church. I enjoy watching Alabama football, shopping, and spending time at the lake with family and friends. I am a supporter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation as they strive to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes, so that my son, and other children, do not have to depend on insulin as a life support.

" A hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in the bank...but the world may be a better place because I made a difference in the life of a child." Forest Witcraft
