I have a BSE in Physical Education with a coaching endorsement for 7-12 grades
I have MSE in Special Education 4-12 grades
I started teaching at Marion Public Schools in 2010, in which I began at the High School in the Self-Contained Classroom. I worked two years and then decided I would rather work with younger students, in which I transfered to the Intermediate School where I have been for 6 years. I teach self-contained Special Education for 4th and 5th graders. I teach all subject areas for those students in need of some extra help with all subjects.
I started teaching at the Jonesboro Human Development Center as the Physical Education Teacher for children and adults with disabilities. I worked there for 10 years and they decided to move all children to Conway so I moved to Public School Setting and got my masters degree in Speical Education. I worked 2 years in Trumann Public Schools, 2 years in Russeville, and 1 year in Horn Lake Middle School before moving to Marion where I have been for 6 years.
I am married and have one son. My son is in the 8th grade here at Marion Jr. High school. We have 3 dogs, 2 are Chihuahua’s and one is mixed breed of Basset hound, lab, and beagle.
I am a country girl who loves to fish, hunt and play softball. I have enjoyed playing the drums for church and in band at the high school level. I just love doing anything with my family, especially traveling. I have been to Jamacia, Bahamas, Coszemel, and KeyWest Florida. I love going to the beach and taking a deep sea fishing trip, it was awesome, caught me a 30lb red drum. My son and husband caught some sharks, it was very intense. I enjoy my family just hanging out and meeting new people.
