I am originally from Greenwood, Arkansas but I moved to Russellville in 2011 to attend college. After graduating from Greenwood High School, I chose to further my education at Arkansas Tech University.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude with my bachelor’s degree in secondary English education.
I obtain at least 60 hours of professional development yearly in order to become the best educator I can be. I have also had the privilege in years past to attend an Arkansans for Gifted and Talented Education (AGATE) conference in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
I began my teaching career here at Atkins five years ago. I teach 8th grade English and Advanced English.
I recently got married in March of 2019. I also have a cat named Meeko and a guinea pig named Daisy.
When I am not teaching, I like spending time with my friends and family. I enjoy hiking and exploring the beautiful state of Arkansas. I like watching football and I try to attend at least one Arkansas Razorback game per season. WPS! I try to travel as much as possible. My favorite vacation destination is Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
