My teaching career began at a private business college in Ohio and West Virginia before becoming a public high school Business Education teacher. This year begins my 28th year in the public school system (24 of those in Laurel County) and each year brings something new, challenging and inspiring to me. My goal in becoming a teacher was to inspire students to learn--not only in the classroom, but through opportunities outside of the classroom as well. Through advising FBLA and DECA, many students were able to attend conferences in New Orleans, Charlotte, New York City, Los Angeles and Orlando in addition to various places in Kentucky. I was honored and excited to be a part of the new faculty when McDaniel Learning Center opened its doors in October, 2008, where we enjoy seeing our students experience academic success through smaller class sizes and individual help.
I love teaching but consider my major accomplishment in life, however, to be raising our six children. Courtney is a business teacher in northern KY, Calley is a certified public accountant, Brennan, Bailey and Braden are college students at Morehead State and University of the Cumberlands, and Braxton will be in first grade! My granddaughter, Winter, holds my heart in her hands and makes me smile. As a passionate animal advocate, I work to transport dogs to rescue groups and love my Roxie, Izzy, Ollie, Daisy and Sage :)
