In 2002, I graduated from Morrilton High School and entered University of the Ozarks that following fall. After completing three years of undergraduate work, I decided to take a break from pursuing a career in pre-medicine and acquired my license in auto/home insturance. Within a year of selling insurance, my heart was called to complete my last year of undergraduate school at University of the Ozarks and graduated with my Bachelors in Biology in the fall of 2007. Upon graduation, I received my M.O.M. degree and pursued that career for eight years before beginning the Masters of Teaching program at Arkansas Tech University where I graduated in the fall of 2017.
I am currently the Biology/ AP Biology instructor, the science club sponsor, the CSU sponsor, and the chair for PPC.
While pursuing my career in teaching, I started substitute teaching at Lamar School District in 2014. After two years of subbing, I was hired at Lamar High School to be the In-School Detention instructor where students would come to my room for disciplinary action. During my internship of the MAT program, I was hired at Lamar High School to be the 8th grade Earth/Life Science instructor. I then had the privelege to teach Physical Science for three years.
In 2002, a green eyed boy looked at a blue eyed girl and said, “I think I really like you!” Sixteen years later they have built a home with one boy, one girl, and a dog with a limp.
When I am not teaching, I am an active member at First Landmark Missionary Baptist Church where I am a Bible study teacher, vice-president of Lydia Ladies, youth sponsor, church camp preschool teacher, and other various jobs as needed. I love hiking and adventuring God’s country.
