I began teaching at Hoxie High School in the 2017-2018 school year while completing my final semester of graduate studies. As of December 2017, I have a Master's degree in Special Education, K-12. Before coming to HHS, I worked for 4 years as a special education paraprofessional in another school district. In my undergraduate work, I studied Music Therapy, and I have maintained my credentials of MT-BC (Board Certified Music Therapist). I worked as a Music Therapist in Indiana for 6 years before moving to Arkansas in 2012. My husband and I live in Hoxie with our son and daughter.
