Current Position:

I have had the honor of teaching at Pinecrest Elementary/Middle School since 1990. In 2015 I moved into the position of the Library Media Specialist. I collaborate and teach with all grades and subjects. I believe that all students can find a safe way to explore the world through literature, and I absolutley love what I do.



Family Information:

I have been married to my husband, Joel, for 33 years, and we have two amazing children. Savannah is 29 years old, and she works as an Occupational Therapist. My son, Connor, is 25 years old. He is  a senior at Louisiana Tech and is majoring in Chemical Engineering. I also share my life with our spoiled rotten rescue cat, Oliver.


Personal Information:

When I am not working you will usually find me curled up on my sofa reading. I believe that reading and libraries have the power to change lives, and I have seen it happen with  my own children. Books represent an escape, an learning experience, and a way to develop empathy. Books really do have the power to change who you are.
