I am very excited to be a part of the Literacy Department at DMESC.  I have taught 4th grade for 2 years and been GT Coordinator for Mt. Ida School District for 13 years.  The last 4 years of my education career have been as GT Specialist for DMESC and Southwest Cooperative.  I am an active board member of Arkansas Association of Gifted Educational Administrators (AAGEA) and Arkansans for Gifted and Talented Education (AGATE).   My experience as a team member for AdvanceED acceditation was extremely valuable in learning about standards of excellence in education.  Serving in various roles on the district and state level has helped to prepare me for working with different school districts within our cooperative area.  

I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Chris, for 27 years and we have 2 wonderful children, Seth and Anna.  We love to travel and work in our church.  We are lifelong Razorback fans so you can find us on any given Saturday cheering on the Hogs!  WPS!

If I can assist you in any way, please do not hesitate to contact me.
