I have been teaching at Alpena for six years, but have been teaching for 22 years.
I started teaching in Taneyville, Missouri, just the other side of Forsyth. I then moved to Reeds Springs where I taught ninth grade English, Journalism, Video Production, and was the A+ Coordinator for the district. After returning to Arkansas to be close to family, I taught at Green Forest and Berryville. Alpena is my hometown and I love being close to the community where I grew up.
My son Lane and I have three dogs: Coco and Rosco. We love living in the country and enjoying the Ozarks.
I love photography and reading, but hanging out with my family is my favorite. If you see me out and about taking pictures, honk and wave. :-)
