My BS degree in Elementary Education is from Lambuth College (now the University of Memphis at Lambuth) in Jackson, TN.  My Masters degree is from William Woods University in Fulton, MO.


I spent the first ten years of my career at Newbern Elementary School working with the Title 1 program.  The first eight years I helped students in grade 2-8 with Math.  I either pulled them out of their classroom and taught them in small groups, or I went into the classroom and helped students there.  The last 2 years of my time in Title 1 I ran the computer lab, which was better known at that time as the WICAT lab.  The rest of my years I have taught 5th grade, except for 1 year that I taught 3rd.  I have been blessed to teach at Newbern Elementary my whole career.


I have 2 grown step-children and 2 beautiful and very precious to me grandchildren.
