I began teaching at Ouachita Elementary in 2000.
I left the classroom in 2012 to become Dean of Students K-12. I was in that position for two years before becoming the elementary principal in 2014.
My first year of teaching was in 1992 in Prattsville, Arkansas.
I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 25 years. We both graduated from Ouachita in 1986. We have one son, Hunter, who is a freshman at Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. Thankfully still living at home with us are our pets Graygirl (dog) and T-bone (22 lb) solid black cat.
I faithlfully run with my friends. We have nicknamed ourselves the "Why Nots." If it weren't for my friends I wouldn't be running.
I love reading and look very forward to monthly book club meetings with my Magic Carpet book club buddies. I also love working in my yard.
