About the teacher


I have a bachelors degree In Early Childhood Education from Arkansas State University and have completed 12 hours towards my masters degree.


I am in my 21st year as a teacher and my 22nd  year in education. I started my career as a preschool coordinator for Phillips County Developmental Center overseeing the services and education of preschoolers with special needs. After a short time here, I moved on to be the education coordinator for Headstart in Forrest City, Arkansas. I spent a year and a half working for Headstart when I was offered a teaching position in Forrest City. At Forrest City, I taught first, third, fourth, and sixth grades. I have spent the last five years teaching math and science to 5th graders. I have spent the last three years teaching first grade special education when this opportunity became available. 


I am happy to be teaching at Olive Branch Elementary. I have been teaching in the Forrest City, Arkansas school district all of my career and decided it was time for a change.

I live in Hernando but am not a native of the south. I was born and raised in California and decided at 21 that I needed a slower pace in life not the fast pace life of the big city.

I have a daughter, Kayla, who is married and lives in El Dorado, Arkansas. She attended Forrest City schools and then South Arkansas College where  she  graduated with her radiology credentials. She and her husband Caleb have a beautiful little girl Hadleigh, and Paige Jeri is due to make her appearance in November.

I am an avid fisherman and golfer. I find these activities as a time for me to relax. Yes, golf can be relaxing if you don't take it too serious. I just love the outdoors.

I am looking forward to teaching your children about the importance of healthy eating and exercise.
