High School Math Teacher
I graduated from Clarksville High School in May 2010, and immediately started college. I started at Arkansas Tech University in Russellville as a Math Ed major because I knew going in that I wanted to be a math teacher. In four years, I graduated from ATU with two bachelor degrees (2014). After graduation I took a year off so that I could teach my first year with no distractions. I then re-enrolled at ATU as a Criminal Justice major and graduated again in 2016 with my first associate degree, and May 2017 with my second. In June of 2017, I enrolled in a master’s program at ATU and completed that degree in August of 2019. Since finishing, I have decided to take another year off before choosing my next program.
I have attended Advanced Placement Summer Institute, put on by University of Arkansas at Little Rock, every summer since 2014 to continue to be certified to teach an AP class.
I applied to Lamar School District in May 2014 and was hired in the same month. I started my first year teaching in Lamar High School in August 2014 and have been here in Lamar ever since. I have taught Pre-Calculus and Quantitative Literacy every year that I’ve been teaching, and I occasionally teach AP Calculus when there are students interested.
I am happily married (since 09/12/15) to my husband, Brett Arrington. We currently have two dogs, Thor and Loki, and we treat them like our children.
When I’m not teaching, planning lessons, grading papers, or other teacherly duties, I enjoy spending time with my husband, dogs, or my extended family. Some of my hobbies include Netflix, coloring, and scrapbooking, but I also enjoy learning in my own classes at Arkansas Tech University.
