I love Sequoyah! It is a pleasure teaching for the Russellville School District. I am truly dedicated to every student's well being and education they receive in my classroom. I feel with encouragement and collaboration with parents, they will all be successful learners and leaders in our community. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and golfing. What I love most about teaching is the relationships that I build with my students and their families.

I have five children, Bailey, Laura, Luke, Jack, and Elijah. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, and playing sports and games with those I love! In addition to being passionate about teaching each student in a positive atmosphere, I value building relationships with my students and their families.

I graduated from Arkansas Tech University in with a degree in Early Childhood Education. While at Tech, I played for the Golden Suns basketball team and met my husband Matt. We have 3 children, Hallie Grace, Drake, and Beau. I love running, reading, camping, sports, and spending time with family! One thing I love most about teaching is being able to build relationships with students and their families in a fun and loving environment. I want my students to be the best they can be!
