I am beginning my 21st year of teaching at Addison. I teach 10th and 11th grade American history- and those courses are also dual enrollment college credit courses through Wallace State (spring only). I teach Career Preparation Class, 8th grade skills, and instrumental music. I am in my 18th year as Addison band director. Along with Mrs. Gilbreath, I help out as senior sponsor. I was track coach from 2003-2007.
I graduated from high school in 1982 from my hometown of Liberal, Kansas. I completed my B.A. in Communications Management in 1986 from the University of Alabama and my M.A. in History (with a focus on colonial America and 20th century Europe) in 1988 from the University of Alabama.
I’m an Apple Teacher. Apple recognizes me for demonstrating my skills using Apple products to enhance productivity and inspire creativity in my classroom.
I am a Google Certified Educator (Level 1) which demonstrates the advanced knowledge, skills, and competencies needed to implement and integrate Google for Education tools.
