Current Position:

I began teaching at A.C.

Jones Academic Decathlon team since 2001.  

I also serve as the Social Studies Department head and on the District Education Improvement Committee. 

Family Information:

I raise many pets and animals including dogs, cats, horses, goats, chickens, and guinea fowl.  I happily live in the country and enoy living in a small town; I love easy traffic and space between neighbors.  I come from a family of educators and truly enjoy working with teenage students.

Personal Information:

My hobbies include raising animals and reading.  In my free time, I catch up on land and animal work at home, try cooking new and diverse dishes, and read.  I hope to start vegetable gardening and put in fruit trees in the next year. I am also trying to travel to new places each year both in and out of the country.
