I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Brenau and a Master's degree from Walden University.


After becoming Morgan's mother, I realized that I wanted to be a teacher. I was a paraprofessional for 2 years in Kindergarten before I became a teacher at Coker. I  taught third grade for my first 2 years and then took a year off to have my second daughter, Mallory.  Then, I taught fifth and I finally transferred to second grade which was the grade I student taught with Marla Isabell. I've had the privilege to teach with some amazing ladies! I've also been blessed to teach some of my formal students' children. 


 I am married to Mitch Sanford. We've been married for 26 years. We have 2 beautiful daughters: Morgan (22) and Mallory (18). We are active members at Rock Bridge Community Church in Dalton. We serve on the Coffee and Greeter committee. We are also a part of a small group. We also enjoy volunteering at The Miracle Field.
