Hello My Name Is...
Welcome to 7th grade! This is my 16th year in education. I am excited to work with you and your family this year. I am a local girl--as I attended Bentonville schools kindergarten through senior year. I then went to the University of Arkansas for my undergraduate degree. Go Hogs!!!! I have a double major in English and Journalism. I then chose to complete my education requirements. I graduated from the University of Arkansas with a Masters of Teaching. My first job was at Kirksey Middle School in Rogers teaching 7th grade English, geography, and reading. After teaching for 5 years at Kirksey, my family relocated to Orange County, California. I taught at University High School in Irvine, California, for 3 years. While I was there, I taught 9th and 10th grade English and oversaw the school newspaper for one year. Then, I moved into administration. I was a high school assistant principal for four years.
When I had my daughter, it was time to come home to Northwest Arkansas where all of our family was. In 2011, I took a job at Oakdale Middle School. I am teaching 7th grade English, Arkansas History, World HIstory, and Reading this year.
