I have taught first grade for 10 years. I love using technology in the classroom, and I have a passion for teaching!
I believe learning should be fun and hands-on. Little learners learn best when they are motivated and engaged. Technology plays a big role in my classroom and it's benefits are greater than I could've ever imagined! When my students know they're loved and have fun, they are successful!

I am a mother of two wonderful boys (3 and 15), and wife of 23 years to my awesome husband. We live in Marion, Arkansas and enjoy outdoor activities with our boys such as camping, swimming, and playing in the yard. I am passionate about my work and family because that's what makes me the happiest.
