Personal Information: I am married to the love of my life, Keith, and have two beautiful daughters, Claira and Chloe. When I am not doing laundry or cleaning the kitchen I love to read a great book, go fishing with my family, shopping with my sister, or take a trip to Arkansas for a weekend backpacking trip. I love teaching and feel very blessed that I have the privilege of helping students prepare to go into the field of education.
