I graduated from Atkins High School in 1996. I attended Arkansas Tech University and received a degree in Economics/Finance. In 2003, I enrolled at the University of Central Arkansas. Where I recieved a Master’s in Business Administration. In 2004, I decided I wanted to leave the business world and start a career in education. At that time I enrolled in the Non Traditional Licensure Program through the state of Arkansas. I worked through that program to recieve my teacher certification.
I began my teaching career in 2007 at Magazine Elementary School. That year I taught 4th grade social studies. In 2008, I taught 6th grade math, science, and social studies. From 2009-2011, I taught 5th and 6th grade math at Magazine Elementary.
I started working in Atkins in 2012, where I taught middle school alternative learning. In 2013, I moved to 5th grade science. In 2014, I began teaching 4th grade. I started in 4th grade teaching writing. In 2015, I taught math and science. For the 2016 school year I taught Science. This year I am teaching science and social studies.
I am married to Jason, our IT coordinator for the district. We have 3 children, two of which attend Atkins Elementary.
I love technology and spend hours playing on-line games, and learning how to use new technologies that become available.
