District Dyslexia Coordinator
I attended the Huntsville School District from the beginning of my Fifth-grade year until I graduated in 1992. After graduating from Huntsville HighSchool, I attended the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. I majored in Elementary Education through the MAT program. This allowed me to graduate with my Masters in the Art of Teaching. After graduating from the University of Arkansas and obtaining my teaching certificate, I landed my first job at Eureka Springs Middle School teaching 6th grade Math. With one year of experience under my belt, Mr. Samples and the school board hired me here at Huntsville. I have been here ever since, and I feel so blessed to be able to teach in place that I call home.
I started teaching in Huntsville in 1998 and have been teaching here in various roles ever since. I have taught third, fourth, and fifth grades as a regular classroom teacher and worked as the literacy facilitator. I am currently the District Dyslexia Coordinator.
I graduated with my MAT degree in 1997 and got my first teaching position at Eureka Springs Middle School teaching sixth grade Math.
I have been married for twenty-six years to my high school sweet heart, Coy Siegrist. We were married in 1994. We have three children: a twenty-year-old son entering his Junior year in college, a nineteen-year-old son entering his Sophomore year in college, and a sixteen-year-old daughter entering her Junior year in high school here at Huntsville.
We live on my Grandad’s old homeplace and help my dad take care of the cattle. I have to admit that I really like working cows, but sometimes I can lose my temper with them. :) We also have a cat named Scooter that is around 15 years old.
I play the guitar and the mandolin at church. I love the old hymnals and praise and worship music. :)
I also enjoy going out and checking the cows with my dad and my husband. Against their better judgment, I have named a lot of the cows. I’m starting to rub off on Dad and Coy because they are actually starting to call the cows by name instead of number! LOL! Don’t get me wrong, cows can be infuriating… It just keeps things interesting. :)
