Degrees and Certifications:
BS Elementary 1-6 2008 MEd Special Reading Elementary 2014
I am a 1990 graduate of GHS, and achieved a MEd at Drury University in 2014. I previously taught middle school at Thornfield from 2011-2013, then here at Gainesville from 2013-2015. Before becoming a teacher, I worked as a medical assistant for 12 years, I returned to that for the past four years due to some big changes in my life. I am also a Certified Pharmacy Tech at Ava Drug, where I work one day a month. I am also a member of the Mansfield Volunteer Fire Department.
My hobbies are hunting, playing at the offroad park. I love to shoot bows and spend time outdoors whenever I get the opportunity. My passion, however, is reading. My favorite authors are J.K. Rowling, Jack London, Gary Paulsen and Stephen King. My MEd is in special reading, so I hope to give our students a great foundation so they can flow through life on a river of words!
I am married to my best friend, Dale. I have a grown daughter, Jessica, who lives in Oklahoma City with her husband,
David and three children. Olivia, Gracelyn and David Russell are my precious grandbabies. My son, Andrew, lives in Ava and has worked as a cook at Rockbridge for 8 years. I also have a step-son, Austin, who lives in Mansfield and works as a mechanic. Dale and I live together in Mansfield with our two cats, Bob and Buddy. They are both adopted strays who now live a very spoiled life.
