Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice

Many years ago, I chose teaching because I loved children and the thought of influencing their lives was very appealing. All these                                     years later, I stay in education, specifically in Hickman Mills because our kids deserve teachers dedicated to giving them the very best.  My kids, our kids,    deserve teachers who see in them the potential to change the world. The future of the world sets in my classroom.


Personal Interests

I really enjoy spending time with family and friends, as well as attending as many concerts that I can.  I love to spend time reading a    good book while enjoying coffee.
