About Me

Educational History:

I am a 1979 valedictory graduate of Rison High School.  I graduated Magna cum Laude in 1983 from Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, AR, with a degree in Elementary Education and Library Science, and a minor in Math.  I received my Master’s degree from Southern Arkansas University in Magnolia, AR, in Instructional Media in 1998.

Degrees and Certifications:

  • High School Diploma, Rison High School, Rison, AR – 1979
  • BSE, Ouachita Baptist University, Arkadelphia, AR – 1983
  • MSE, Southern Arkansas University, Magnolia, AR – 1998

Current Position:

I began teaching at Genoa Central School District in the fall of 1996, in the brand-new library at Gary E. Cobb Middle School.  I added over 8,000 titles to the once-bare shelves, helped establish the Accelerated Reader program, and maintained a collection of print and non-print materials, including the latest in technology.  I moved to the High School media center in the fall of 2012 and have added almost two thousand items to circulation.  I maintain the HS webpage, assist with testing, and act as the district eSchool parent/guardian account manager, as well as other duties, as needed.

Previous Position:

My first teaching jobs were as math teacher – I was hired upon graduation from OBU in 1983 as the upper-level math teacher at Fouke High School, teaching subjects such as Trigonometry, Algebra I & II, Geometry, and Consumer Math.  I remained there for two years, serving as Junior Class sponsor and as cheerleader sponsor in addition to my teaching duties, then I moved to Texarkana AR School District, where I was a 7th grade math teacher.  I remained at this position until I took maternity leave for my first child in 1983, which extended through my second son born in 1991.  I resumed my teaching career in 1996.

Family Information:

My husband, Raymond, and I have been married since 1983.  We are the proud parents of two sons, both Genoa Central High School honor graduates – Nathan, an Air Force Tech Sergeant, working in Intelligence, and Nicholas (Nick), an educator with the AR Game & Fish.  Nathan, his wife, Gee, and son, Blake, live in northern California, and Nick and his fiance, Hannah, live in northern Arkansas.  We currently have three feline fur babies living at home.
