I graduated from West Memphis Christian in 1997.
I graduated from Arkansas State University in 2002.
In the fall of 2002, I was placed at Avondale Elementary for my final Field Experience through Arkansas State University. I interned under Carol Cate for my kindergarten placement and Peggy Gaines for my first grade placement. I learned so much from these two exemplary teachers. They will always hold a special place in my heart! I quickly fell in love the students and staff here at Avondale, so when I graduated in December of 2002, I knew exactly where I wanted to work!
The following fall my dream became reality as I began my teaching career as a kindergarten teacher here at Avondale. I taught kindergarten for 12 years, before moving into my current position: Curriculum Technologist. While it was hard to leave the classroom, I love being a resource for teachers and staff as we all strive to meet the needs of our students. Avondale truly is "Simply the Best!"
