I have been with ACCDC since July 2015.  I received my BA in Human Services from Arkansas Baptist College and my MA in Human Resource Management from Webster University.  I have been employed in early childhood education for over 22 years and I have over 225 hours of TAPP approved trainings. I am the mother of 3 beautiful daughters.  My hobbies are traveling, shopping and collecting snowmen, but my favorite hobby is reading.  One of my favorite quotes is “teachers who love teaching, teach children to love learning”.  I believe in the scripture “train a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it” Proverbs 22:6.

I just completed my first year at UALR and I am very excited about teaching your child this year. I am happy to help them explore and learn new things all while having fun.  I have volunteered for several years in preschools during high school and love working with young children. I love watching them grow and learn new things each day.
