I have lived in Harrison my entire life (except for my college days at Arkansas Tech in Russellville). I went to Bergman school, beginning with Mrs. Cates in kindergarten and graduating in 1995. Coming back to teach at Bergman has always been a dream of mine. I follow a long line of teachers: Granny taught at St. Joe (Grandpa even drove the school bus); my aunt, Mrs. Hodge, taught here at Bergman for many years; Dad taught shop at Omaha; and my Momma came to Bergman to teach when I started kindergarten (she retired in 2007).

Two other specials in my life are my doggies A.J. (white) and Zahra (black & white). They can be a mess, but I can’t help but love them.
This is my 18th year of teaching. I have previously taught preschool for three years, 3rd grade for five years, and kindergarten for eight years.
This is my second year to to be outside of the classroom, teaching reading interventions in small groups with students from first to twelfth grades. In the spring of 2017 I will be completing my two years of training in the Take Flight curriculum from McKinney Christain Academy in McKinney, Texas. Upon completion of class requirements and national exam, I will be a Certified Academic Language Therapist (Woo Hoo! I’m so excited!).
Teaching keeps me pretty busy, but in my spare time I enjoy camping, canoeing & kayaking, going to razorback games (Woo Pig Sooie!), and playing games such as cards, Just Dance, and Guitar Hero with my kids.
