I am a graduate of Memphis State University. I have been teaching since 1991, and I came to Ellendale in 2000. I have enjoyed teaching both second and third grade. My husband is also an educator. Our son is a college graduate, our daughter is in her 2nd year of college, and our youngest daughter is in 7th grade. We reside in the country where I enjoy the peace and quiet, and wildlife. We have 2 dogs, but I hope to eventually add goats and miniature horses to our list of pets! My hobbies include working in the yard, enjoying animals and nature, playing the piano, and traveling. Some of the photos you see were taken out west in Wyoming and South Dakota. There are so many great places to visit in our country! I am also learning how to sew, but I'm discovering it takes a lot of practice and patience!
