A little about myself:

My husband and I have been married for many years and have enjoyed raising four wonderful children together. We also have our fur child Zeus that is part husky and lab. Our daughter Jennifer lives in Washington State with her husband Jeff, our seven year old grandson Ian, and fur child Freddy. Our daughter Brittney lives in Russellville with her husband Matt and their fur child Sophie. Our daughter Alyvia is a sophomore at Todd County High and our son Noah is in the eigth grade at Todd County Middle School.

I love teaching and getting to know the little ones. As the year goes on you will notice my love for reading and my belief that all children can learn.
