B.S. in Early Childhood and Elementary Education - Jacksonville State University

M.A. in Early Childhood and Elementary Education - University of Alabama


I began teaching kindergarten in 1995 at Johnston Elementary in Anniston, Alabama.  I have been at Big Spring Lake Kindergarten since 1996.  I taught first grade for half of a year.  My heart is in kindergarten! :)


I am a 1991 graduate of Albertville High School.  I married Chris Barclift (who is a 1980 AHS graduate) in July 1997.  We have three boys in the Albertville City School System: Caden, Will, and Sam.  They keep us extremely busy!  We currently have three "free" dogs and a "free" cat.  We always have pets at our home!  We love the Auburn Tigers!  My parents are Marvin Jr. and Bobra Ball of Albertville.  Chris' parents are late Juanita Barclift and the late Warren Barclift, also of Albertville.  We are Christians and love our church family at Solitude Baptist Church.  I teach AWANAS and co-teach Sunday school each week as well as volunteer in the nursery.  Can you tell I love kids?  I try to love others each day as God loves me!  I have wanted to be a teacher since I was in kindergarten!  God has blessed me to be able to live out my dreams.  I am very passionate about teaching kindergarten.  I am honored and grateful to be your child's kindergarten teacher this school year.  Please contact me if you ever have comments, questions, or concerns.
