Welcome to my Page! I have been teaching in Ozark for 23 years, at East Gate until 2005 and at D.A. Smith ever since. Prior to getting my teaching credentials, I had a 20-year career in Digital Communications, based in Silicon Valley and later in the Dallas area. I moved to Ozark in 1995 to be closer to family scattered around the Southeast. I began my career teaching 6th grade Math and Science, then moved into Technology before returning, this year, to core subjects. I'll be dividing my time between regular Civics and Social Studies, and Math/ELA Intervention. In my spare time, I'm an avid reader, digital designer, and recently, a hobby woodworker. I love spending lots of time with my two grandsons, a sophomore at CHS and a 5th grader at Mixon. I'm looking forward to a great year with some terrific kids.
