7th Grade Eng/Lit, 8th Grade Spanish
I am a 2006 graduate of Poplar Bluff High School in Poplar Bluff, Missouri. I graduated with a BSE in English Education in 2010 from Williams Baptist College. After that, I went on to earn my MA in Education with a specialization in Teaching English Language Learners from Ashford University. I plan to begin working on my PhD very soon!
BSE English Education
MAEd with Specialization in Teaching English Language Learners
Certified in grades 5-8 and 9-12 English language arts
I began teaching at SJHS in 2015. This is my 2nd year as a bulldog!
Before I came back home to Missouri, I taught 8th grade English for two years in Hernando, Mississippi. But, before that, I taught adult ESL (English as a second language) at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, Arkansas for two years. All together, this will be my 6th year as a teacher.
When I’m not spending time in my classroom or working on school related activities, I really enjoy playing golf (although I admit I’m certainly not making Tiger Woods proud...Ha!). I also enjoy working out (Zumba, yoga, and weight lifting are my favorites), reading, and anything related to makeup and beauty (Yes, I do consider myself a self-taught makeup artist!).
