Brooks says that while it can be a challenge to teach from a distance, it is also very exciting to continually learn ways to enhance the learning experience for the students through the use of technology.

Brooks is looking forward to the expansion of the virtual school to make it available to more students, who want or need to take courses.

In her spare time, Brooks is active in the community and serves as treasurer for the Save Our Strays (SOS) Animal Shelter. She and her husband also own a cage less dog boarding business, Dog Days, in Enterprise, Ala.
