My parents brought me to Arkansas when my father retired in 1985. After graduating from Russellville High School in 1989, I went to Arkansas Tech University looking forward to a career in education. I feel very fortunate to have been selected to teach at such a wonderful school. After teaching in the Social Studies Department from 1994-2017, I became the librarian. I have also been the Beta Club Sponsor for the last 26 years. My husband of 29 years, Greg, and I share two children and a granddaughter.
