Connie began her teaching career at Montgomery Elementary school in DeKalb County, Ga., and received her Master of Education degree from The University of Georgia in 1973. Connie left teaching to raise a family in 1976, and involved herself in various church and community activities in the states of Florida, Mississippi, and Tennessee, where her husband, Bill, worked. She became a member of PEO while living in Tennessee. Returning to Atlanta in 1996, it would become a matter of time before she would begin teaching again.
