Growing up, my family moved around a lot. This gave me the chance to expereince many different parts of the United States, and the different cultures in which they represent. The summer before my freshman year of high school my family moved to Perryville High School. It would be there that I finished my high school education, as a Perryville Mustang.
Fresh out of high school, I attended the Universityof Central Arkansas, in Conway. Craving the dorm experience, I moved out, and into a dorm 45 min from home. After my first year I went to the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton, where I began to figure out what I really wanted to do. After toying with a career in the medical field, I fell in love with the idea of teaching. I had become a peer tutor for several students in my Literature and History classes, and I found that I truely enjoyed helping someone flip the light switch.
After completing my Associate’s Degree at UACCM, I went back to UCA, to finish up my bacelors. I graduated UCA in May of 2016.
While I was finishing my bachelors, I met my husband. We got married and have two wonderful children. Zoey, 5, is full of life, and sassy to the core. She is full of one-liners, and has her own sense of fashion, as well as her own way of doing things. Asher is 3, and my cuddle bug. He is full of hugs and kisses, and the best laugh I have ever heard. Luckily he is a super happy kiddo, so we get to hear it a LOT!
My husband and I live in Conway, and he works from home with a consulting firm.
When I am not in the classroom, grading papers, making lesson plans, or making copies, I am usually running my kids to their after school activities. They both are in a gymnastics class, and Zoey is also in a ballet class. When they don’t have activities we hang at home, playing outside, or making a mess inside!
When left on my own, I tend to take advantage of the peace and quiet and take a nap or catch up on house work. However, if all of that is done, and I am able to do anything… you would find me on the golf course. Do to some severe injuries in high school, the only sport that I was really able to play was golf, and I was good. Really good. I made All-State three years in a row, and could have played in college. However, my injury was not one that would allow me to play competitively. If I could do anything I would love to get back out on the course.
