I attend literacy and technology professional development that I feel will make me a better teacher!
I started at Eureka Springs Middle School in July of 2016. I was welcomed by the staff and the community. I am excited for my second year at ESMS. I am teaching Social Studies and Literacy in the wonderful world of Harry Potter. (My room is decorated in a Harry Potter themed.) I am also the advisor for the ESMS Student Council. Last year we made improvements to the school by increasing student awareness and getting 2 new water fountains in the building!
I student taught for 4 weeks in a kindergarten class and 9 weeks in a 4th grade class at Blue Eye Elementary. I started my teacher career in Fall of 2012. I was a long term substitute from October until May in 3rd grade. The summer of 2013 brought me to Berryville Intermediate School. I taught there for 3 years in 5th grade.
I am a middle child of 5 with 1 older brother, 1 older sister, and 2 younger sisters. I am a proud aunt to 3 beautiful nieces and 2 handsome nephews. My husband, Daniel, and I have been married since May of 2013. We live in Harrison with our bundle of furry babies. We have a sweet Netherland Dwarf bunny named Molly Rose. 3 indoor/outdoor cats that love our 2 indoor cats. One of the outdoor cats is a Tabby with white paws named Niko. Another one is Tabby named Gato. The momma called is a Tuxedo named Moriah! Moriah gave us 2 sweet black cats named Tiny and Fluff. These brothers are super playful and can get crazy hyper at night! I love to share stories and photos about my wonderful family.
Daniel and I are nerds/geeks to the core! We love watching sci-fi, collecting comics, going to comic conventions, cosplaying, and playing video/board games! We always like to hear what other people like and are interested in! I love to be outdoors and will have class outside when I can! I enjoy playing ultimate frisbee and going on walks. Reading is something I enjoy very much. I drive an hour each way to school, so audiobooks are wonderful! I love book suggestions, tell me what I should read next! I also have my own Mary Kay business and love enriching the lives I come into contact through that venue! My goal in everything I do is to love others and make them feel important!
