After graduating from Delaplaine High School in 1992, I attended Arkansas State University, obtaining a degree in early childhood/elementary education. I then returned to Delaplaine to teach 3rd grade for ten years.
In 2007, after the closure of Delaplaine School, I was given the opportunity to teach 5th grade at Hoxie Elementary. After my fifth year at Hoxie, I moved from 5th grade math to elementary media specialist. I earned a Master's in Library Science from Texas Woman's University in 2014. This will be my seventh year as the elementary librarian at Hoxie.
As an educator...no matter what grade or subject I'm teaching...it is my goal to make every student feel confident and capable in their abilities. As the librarian, I want the students to discover a love for reading and have the library serve as a gateway to unlimited adventure!
