Welcome to Reed Elementary ! I am looking forward to a productive and successful year. I am thrilled to be a part of the Reed staff! Here is a just a little about me! I am beginning my 27th year in my teaching career. I have taught numerous grade levels including 1st,2nd,5th and 6th grade classrooms. I have also taught inclusion/resource and specialized program classroom. I received my undergraduate degree Bachelor of Science in Education from the University of Central Arkansas in 1994. I returned to college in 2009 to pursue a Masters of Special Education with an emphasis on Autism from the University of North Texas and graduated in 2011.
I have a fifteen year old son that will be in the 10 th grade at Allen High School. He brings much joy and laughter into my life!
I enjoy going for long walks, and exploring new trails even if I get lost! I absolutely love reading and checking books out from the library. To discover a good book or a new author is lknk finding a treasure but I do have a few favorites including Nicholas Sparks, John Grisham, and Debbie Macomber. My favorite book to read during the summer months is definitely a beach read. There are always so many to choose from each year and this year I discovered a series that was so entertaining.
I absoultely love teaching and am excited to be teaching another year at Reed Elementary! This will be my 7th year!
