Language, Math, Reading


I graduated from DCHS in 1983. I attended David Lipscomb College (University) and graduated from Tennessee Tech in 1987.  I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education  grades (1-8).


I began my teaching career in September 1987 at DeKalb West Elementary. I am beginning my 31st year of teaching.  I was voted Teacher of the Year in 2008.  I have taught Chapter/ Title I (3 yrs.), 4th grade (9 yrs.), 8th grade (3 yrs.), 6th grade (11 yrs.), and RTI (5 yrs.). In the past I have taught all subjects, but my favorites are math and social studies. I have also served as yearbook advisor (5 yrs.), cheerleading coach (1 yr.), FCA sponsor(2 yrs.), 21st century program (after school)(6 yrs.) and served on various school committees.  


I was born in Rockwood, TN with my twin sister, Susan.  I have lived most all my life in Smithville, TN.  I am married to Brian England, my high school sweetheart.   We have a daughter, Laura, who is an Optometrist in Lawton, Oklahoma.
