1st Grade Teacher
I am originally from Rock Springs, Wyoming, born and raised. I graduated from Rock Springs High School in 1999.
I worked after high school rather than going straight to college. A few years after moving to Arkansas I found out that my life long dream of becoming a teacher could become a reality through the Northark/ATU partnership program. I worked full-time, raising my boys, being a wife, and attending classes. In 2013 I finally graduated Summa-Cum-Laude from Arkansas Tech University with a Bachelor degree in Early Childhood Education.
Assosiate of Arts – North Arkansas College
Bachelor in Early Childhood Education – Arkansas Tech University
I was blessed to begin working with this school district in August 2014. I am currently teaching first grade and loving it! I love working with children, they change my life daily!
I have been married to my wonderful husband since February 14, 2003. We have three wonderful boys. All three attend school at Valley Springs. Brendon started Kindergarten, Joseph started middle school (5th grade) , and Donnie started 8th this year. We have six cats-all very spoiled.
We have a very exciting and busy life and love every minute of it. My husband is a musician and the rest of us share his love for music. Spending time with my family is one of the most important pass times I have.
When I am not teaching I love to spend time with my family. I also enjoy crocheting. I have made many blankets, dish towels, doilies, gloves, etc. I have even taught a beginning crochet class. I also love to sing and listen to many kinds of music.
My favorite Sonic Drink is Sweet Green Tea!
I LOVE chocolate of any kind!
My favorite smell is vanilla.
My favorite color is purple!
