On a personal note, my husband and I met at Jacksonville State University. He played football and I was a cheerleader. Together we have two children. Our son is 14 and he loves to wrestle and play football. We also have a two year old that is sweet and sassy.  We love spending as much time as we can at the lake and listening to music. Prior to moving across town, I lived in the Hueytown community for seven years! I truly have a passion for education and building relationships. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns.


Always for Children,

Dr. Slaughter
