Special Education Teacher
I graduated from Melbourne High School in Melbourne, AR in 2011. I received a Bachelor of Science in Education in 2017 from Arkansas State University in Jonesboro. Currently, I am working towards receiving my Master’s of Education in Special Education from Arkansas Tech University. Although I do not have any kids of my own, I do have four dogs that are spoiled enough that they think they're my children.
I am certified to teach kindergarten through sixth-grade general education and am currently working towards a Master’s of Education in Special Education. I am CPR and First Aid certified and have a minor in speech pathology.

ADDRESSING STUDENT NEEDS THROUGH THE IEP PROCESS
This is my third year at Watson Primary and in the resource classroom.
I have worked with at-risk students through summer programs. My teaching internships took place in the fifth, fourth, and kindergarten classrooms.
I am newly married (November 2017) to a wonderful man that is also a teacher. We have four dogs: Holly, Duckie, Lillie, and Casey. I have two sisters: Jackie (32 years old, psych nurse) and Cora (5 years old, starting kindergarten). My youngest sister is adopted which you could tell if you saw her because she has blonder hair and blue eyes!
I love cooking, music, decorating, photography, traveling, and playing with my dogs!
