I am a non traditional teacher. I did not go to college until I was 33 and my youngest child was in pre-school. I have taught in Illinois, Indiana, and now in Arkansas. Arkansas is my home. I was born and raised in Paragould. This will be my 11th year at Hoxie. I taught 6th grade for 4 years, fourth grade for 2, 4 years in the 5th grade and now I have returned to 6th grade writing and 8th grade math.
Math has always been my favorite subject. It's like playing games all day. I love a challenge.
When I'm not at school, I stay busy with my church and my family. My husband, Doran and I have three beautiful daughters and six grandchildren.
I am proud to say I teach at Hoxie Elementary.
