About Me

Educational History:

I graduated from Ford High School in 1994 and Texas A & M Commerce in 1998

Current Position:

This is my eleventh year at Chisum.  The first nine years I taught first grade.  Last year I began training as a dyslexia therapist.  That is what I am doing again this year.   Reading has always been my passion so I am very happy in this position.  

Previous Position:

I taught at three different districts before I came to Chisum. My teaching career began at Greenville ISD in 1998 where I taught First grade for two years.  Then I had the privilege of spending the next six years at home with my boys before going back to teaching.  Once again I was in First grade.  This time teaching at Poetry Community Christian School.  In 2007, our family moved to Paris and with that move I also had to change school districts.  This time to Detroit.  I would remain there for three years.  First teaching first grade and then moving to second.  FInally, I would move to Chisum, where I have remained as a Mustang.  

Family Information:


I have four sons.  My oldest son is Kemp.  He got married this summer to Kristina.  He will  begin teaching sixth grade Math this year in Malakoff.  William is my second born.  He will begin his second year at Criswell College this year studying christian ministry.  Adrian will be a senior at Chisum High.  Landry, my youngest, will be in fourth grade.  My husband Billy is the pastor at Southside Baptist Church here in Paris.  We have one pet a dog named Lil Jerry.
