I am a Hector Alumni and graduated in 1999. After high school, I received a Bachelor of Art degree in English from Arkansas Tech University. Eleven years later I went back to Arkansas Tech to receive my Masters of Education in School Counseling and Leadership. This fall I am starting a program at Arkansas State University to receive my certificate in Gifted and Talented.
This is my first year to teach Gifted and Talented. I am so excited to be back working for my alma mater!
Before I began teaching at Hector, I worked for the Upward Bound Program at Arkansas Tech University. Since 2007, I have worked both full time and part time for Upward Bound. I served as the Target School Liaison, Tutor Coordinator, and as a summer instructor. My heart is Upward Bound. I fully believe and support the Upward Bound Program and have personally seen the impact it has had on the lives of the students.
I am married to Ramey and have three children, Kyleigh, Emma, and Ryker. We also have a basset hound named Charlie :)
When I am not teaching, I love to shop, read, and go on walks on our family farm.
