HI! I am delighted to be a first grade teacher at Porter Elementary. This is my 26th year in education. I have taught or worked with all elementary grades, as well as 6th and 8th grade. I have served as an ELL coordinator and Literacy Coach. My husband and I have been married for 19 years. We have a blended family of 5 adult children, all are married except 1. We are the proud Mimi and Papa to 5 amazing grandchildren - 1 boy and 4 girls. I enjoy canning salsa from fresh Arkansas tomatoes (yes there is a difference), and making blinged out tumblers. I have a fur baby, Ace. He is a Chihuahua Poodle mix. As a family, We enjoy camping and lazy days in the pool.
