I graduated from Arkansas Tech University in 1989 with a B.S. in Elementary Education. I then graduated from Harding University in 2013 with a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership.
I started my teaching career in August, 1989. I’ve taught in Plainview, AR, Neptune Beach, FL, Russellville, AR, and Atkins, AR. I have been teaching at Atkins since 2003 and have taught Kindergarten through the Twelfth Grade. I am currently teaching Alternative Learning at Atkins Middle School.
I am married and have 6 children. My four older children have graduated from College and my younger two, Joseph and Lily are in 7th and 8th grade. My husband, Craig, is also a coach and a teacher. I am known as Gigi to my 3 wonderful grandchildren – Claire, Kylee, and Cohen.
