I graduated high school in 2006 in Poplar Bluff, Missouri. I was top ten in my class.
I went back to school to graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in 2015.
Finally, I went back to school to graduate with a Master’s degree in 2018.
I started teaching at Mountain Pine Elementary in 2015. I taught there for 3 years before moving to Mountain Pine High School. The 2023-2024 school year will be my 6th year teaching at the high school. I have been in the district for 9 years. I have taught Math, Science, Life Skills, Programming and KeyCode. I currently tutor, run the Mountain Pine Builder’s Club and the district food pantry.
Mountain Pine is the first and will hopefully be the last place I ever teach. I feel like working summer enrichments and tutoring for colleges have helped me gain teaching experience and a love for teaching.
I have been married since 2021. I have 2 biological children and 4 step children. Two of my step children graduated from Mountain Pine, I have 3 children currently attending Mountain Pine.
I am the proud owner of 6 dogs, 2 cats and a bird.
