I graduated from Berryville High School in 1998.
I graduated from Arkansas Tech University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education.
I have a license to teach Special Education grades PK-12 from the University of Central Arkansas.

This is my first year as a Huntsville Eagle. I will be teaching 5th grade literacy. Ms. Thompson will be my other half this year. She will be teaching Math and Science, and we will share students.
Prior to working for Huntsville, I had the opportunity to teach Special Education grades PK-4. I have also taught a 1st and 2nd grade combined classroom in the subject areas of phonics and writing. For the last 2 years, I taught 3rd grade all subjects one year and literacy/social studies only for one year. I have taught for 9 years overall as a licensed teacher. Prior to that, I worked as a Migrant Paraprofessional and a substitute teacher.
I married my junior high sweetheart, Shannon in 1999. We have an 18 year old daughter, Lexi and a 19 year old son, Austin. They both graduated high school and have full time jobs. We have 3 cats and one yellow lab. We enjoy being on the water and doing just about anything in the outdoors.
When I am not teaching, I love spending time in my pool, on the lake, or at the beach. We love playing softball and volleyball.
