My husband Andrew and I have been married since 2005. We have three wonderful children Corey, Tatumn, and Reese. I graduated from Arkansas Tech University in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education. In 2016, I added an ESL endorsement to my teaching license and in 2019 I received my masters degree in Teaching English to Second Language Learners. I have been teaching at London Elementary since 2006. I consider London Elementary my home. We are a close knit staff and have a special bond with our students and families.

I am so excited to be a part of the Tiger Family! This is my first year teaching and I am blessed to begin this journey right here. I graduated from Arkansas Tech University and with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I love watching movies/shows, being outside, shopping, and spending time with friends and family. First grade is going to be an amazing year full of growth! My passion is to make a positive impact and help every child be successful.
