One of my firmest beliefs is that God makes us all for a purpose, and I feel that teaching is mine.  It is my joy, fulfillment, and privilege to be in this
profession. I attended Arkansas Tech University. I have a degree in Elementary Education and a  Master's Degree in Special Education.  I live in Russellville with my husband and two sweet daughters. Outside of teaching, I enjoy reading, swimming, being theatrical, and singing.  My hope is that my students will be is as excited as I am to come to school every day!

My husband Tyler and I have two boys, Cohen and Cooper. I enjoy reading, running, and spending time with my family. I grew up here in Russellville where I also attended Sequoyah Elementary. I enjoy watching my boys share similar experiences to what I had when I was their age. My favorite part about teaching is being able to witness the learning and growth of students throughout the course of a year. It's amazing to see how their young minds are capable of growing in so many ways, and I love being a part of each child's journey!

I am so excited to be a teacher at Sequoyah Elementary. I have one daughter, Evie. I enjoy sports, trout fishing, hiking, outdoor music concerts, and spending time with my family. I am from the small town of Lamar and attended school there from K-12. I attended Arkansas Tech University and graduated with my bachelors degree in Education. I love being with my students in the classroom watching them learn new skills daily. It is a joy to be part of their educational journey. My goal is to make a positive impact in each of my students' lives.

I graduated from the University of Arkansas Fort Smith with a degree in Elementary Education. I enjoy spending my time outside of school with my daughter, Briella, and husband, Dakota. I also enjoy photography and learning new things. Fostering an encouraging classroom environment and being a positive role model is a belief I hold myself accountable to. I hope to have an impact on my students and to inspire them to become life long learners. I want my students to always strive for positive growth mentally, emotionally, and socially.

I am originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana . I attended Louisiana Tech University and began my teaching career in North Louisiana.  When I am not at school I enjoy hiking, watching baseball, and swimming. I love being in the classroom and fostering a love for learning in my students. I hope to encourage my students to strive to be lifelong learners and to find value in everything they do. I strongly believe that education should be fun and that all students should feel loved by their classmates and our school community.
