I was born on July 2, 1970 as Wanda Jean Lauderdale in Ashland, Alabama. I have a 27 year old daughter named Cecily and three beautiful grandchildren named Cederian 9 years old, Wandaful 8 years old, and Gabriel 7 years old. Teaching is a calling I received from my Lord and Savior and I love teaching. My mother named me Wanda after her favorite teacher which I consider to be unique. My name Wanda means "a wanderer." A two word description of me would be "Simply Divine."
