I am thrilled to be a Ouachita Lion!  I teach English II and have done so for eight years at two other schools.  The first 12 years of my teaching career I taught English I and III, Speech I, Reading I and II, English grade 4 and 5, Social Studies, Health, and Physical Education.  I have served as Cheer Coach, Chess Club Sponsor, and FCS Sponsor.  I have a B.S. degree in Health and Human Performance with a minor in English and an M.Ed. degree in Administration and Supervision.  I am extremely passionate when it comes to helping students realize they have the ability within themselves to achieve their goals regardless of their current situations no matter what they may be.  Watching a student succeed ignites an even greater passion for teaching within me.

Personal Information:

The greatest accomplishment I have had in life is marrying the love of my life, Calvin, and together we were blessed to have been the parents of six beautiful children.  We are a retired military family (US Army) and he and I are both now high school teachers.  Our two sons and four daughters have blessed us with an abundance of grandchildren for whom I will move heaven and earth if need be.  Spending all my extra time with them gives me a space of time that is full of peace and joy.
During my leisure time, not that teachers have much LOL, I play worship music on my keyboard or my piano.  It is in those times where I find calm and an escape from the stresses of life.  My husband and I enjoy tent camping, antique shopping, renovating old homes, and traveling (mostly getting on the beach as much as possible 😎).
