About Me

Educational History:

I graduated from Nashville High School in 2004.  I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Texas A & M University in Texarkana, Texas is 2008.  I obtained my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Southern Arkansas University in 2014. 

Degrees and Certifications:

B.S.E in Elementary Education

M.S.E. in Curriculum and Instruction

Currently working on Curriculum Administration license

Current Position:

I started working at Nashville Elementary in the 2013-2014 school year.  This will be my second year with the Nashville Public School District.  I am currently teaching English Language Arts and Social Studies in the 4th grade.

Previous Position:

I began my teaching career in 2009 at the Mineral Springs School District.  While there, I taught 3rd grade for four years until I came to the Nashville Public School District in 2013. 

Family Information:

In May of 2009, I married Jade Hughes.  We have one son, Kale, who was born in February of 2011.  We have three dogs: Kamo, Darcy Belle, and Spinner Bait.  We also have two cats named Gus and Tux.

Personal Information:

I live and teach in Nashville, Arkansas.  I will be beginning my sixth year of teaching this August.  I chose the field of education for several reasons.  I truly believe it is one of the most rewarding careers a person can have.  I love working with children and watching them grow in so many different ways throughout the year.  I come from a long line of educators in my family.  I always knew education would be in my future, and I am very glad I chose it as my career.  My career goals include obtaining a curriculum administrator license and eventually obtaining my National Board certification.  I would like to one day be a curriculum coach, more specifically, a literacy coach.  I love teaching literacy, and feel it is where I can contribute the most in my career. 

On a personal note, I have been happily married for five years and we have a 3 year old son.  We love to be outside, hunt, fish, camp, and spend time with our family and friends.  My other hobbies include reading, cooking, and traveling.  I am excited and looking forward to this school year!
