I have currently been teaching in the Nettleton School District for 7 years at the middle school (6th grade). I have taught 6th grade math and literacy in the resouce room and have taught in the self contained room for one year. I am currently on my 8th year in the district teaching resource literacy and math to kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade.
I started teaching resource math 21 years ago at Wonder Junior High in West Memphis, Arkansas and coaching Junior High Girls Basketball. My family relocated and I taught inclusion English and Math and coached junior high girls basketball at Cabot Junior High South. I have also taught junior high resource and intermediate resource at Marion School District before moving to Jonesboro and teaching self contained at the Math and Science Magnet School of Jonesboro School District. I taught one year at Jonesboro School District before moving to the Nettelton School District where I currently am now.
I am married with 4 children. Micah-18 attends ASU Beauty School, McKenzie-16 a junior at NHS, Kayson Belle-2nd grade @FME, and step-son, Eli-3rd grade @ Valley View. We do not have any pets, but would love a dog if my husband didn’t have allergies. LOL
I am a busy mom keeping up with all my children and their activities, but I love every minute of it. When I am not teaching, I love to excerise, spend time by the pool, or hang out with my friends and family. My favorite vacation spot is the beach or whereever my best friend is living. (now it is South Carolina)
