I began my career in the Atkins School District in 2006. This will be my 12th year to teach in Atkins Middle School. My hope is to inspire our students to become lifelong learners, community activists, and responsible citizens. I currently teach 5th grade science and reading.
On January 1, 2003, I married my husband, Jeremy. He is a detective with the Morrilton Police Department. We have been blessed with two children who are both proud students of the Atkins School District! Our son, Reese, is an 8th grader this year and our daughter, Shaylee, is in the 5th grade. I usually stay busy taking our children to sports practices and games, as well as piano lessons.
When I can find some peace and quiet, I enjoy curling up on the couch with a great book. I also enjoy running, hiking and exploring, seeing new things and places, but most of all just spending time with my family and friends. I love teaching! It is a blessing each year to have an opportunity to meet and teach new students. I am ready and excited to start another great year here at Atkins Middle School. We look forward to working with you to make this year a success!
