I started teaching at Eureka Springs Elementary school in 2008. I taught first grade for 2 years before moving into a Reading Recovery teacher position. I taught RR for 6 years before moving into my current Reading Interventionist position.
Prior to teaching in ES, I taught Second grade at the Benton County School of the Arts in Rogers, AR for 3 years.
I have 2 children, ages 10 and 7, who attend school here at ESES. We have one dog, Curly Dog, who is very excited to see us when we get home in the afternoons!
