I graduated high school from Northridge High School, in northern Indiana. After high school I attended Indiana University at South Bend, where I earned my Bachelor Science Education in 2007.
I have continued my education at Henderson State University where I earned my ESL and Journalism endorsements. I have also earned my certification for Advanced Placement in Language and Composition at University of Arkansas.
I was given the honor of presenting my Literacy Design Collaborative Implementation process at the High School that Works Summer Conference in New Orleans in 2012. I have also attended the two year Smart Step Literacy program at Harding University.
I am very excited to be a part of the DeQueen High School family this year! These first few weeks as the English 10 and PreAp English 10 instructor have been wonderful. I have terrific students and I am looking forward to an outstanding year with them. Go Leopards!
I began teaching at Wickes High School in 2009 and stayed with the Cossatot River School District until this school year. At Wickes/Cossatot River I have taught 9-12th grade English, PreAP English 11 and AP Language and Composition - Grade 11, ESL, and Journalism.
Prior to my first teaching position, I worked as a paraprofessional at a middle school in Syracuse, Indiana.
I have been truly blessed with my family. My husband is my best friend and we have been married over ten years. My first born will be two this fall; he is our pride and joy. :)
I love to crochet in my spare time!
I made these blankets as gifts.
I made this Captain America shield for my son’s first birthday. My favorite website to find free patterns is Lion Brand Yarn .There you can find numerous video tutorials if you would like to learn how to crochet!
I made this Captain America shield over Thanksgiving Break and it was used as a classroom reward!
