I am thrilled to be starting my 4th year here at DPES teaching 6th grade math, science, and social studies! I graduated in December of 2015 from Faulkner University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. Faulkner is where I met my husband, David, who is a 3rd/4th grade PE teacher as well as a varsity football and basketball coach in Elmore County. To say sports are our life is an understatement! We love spending time together with friends and family watching just about any sporting event. We also love kids (clearly we both made it our profession). We whole-heartedly feel that we are both fulfilling our calling by working with children. We love sharing stories each night when we come in, and we both have so much fun doing what we love probably because we are both still just big kids at heart. Together we have a precious mini goldendoodle named Cash, and we are expecting a little girl this summer. When we aren't at a ball field, a church event, or home loving on our fur baby, you will more than likely find me at your local Target or out somewhere eating Mexican food. I am so excited for the possibilities this school year is going to bring, and I cannot wait to watch our students grow! I have always had an open door policy and welcome any feedback you might be willing to offer. Parent communication is encouraged and vital in the success of our students. Please feel free to ask questions throughout the year. Together we will make this year the best one yet!
