In 1999, I graduated the University of Central Arkansas with honors.
My certification is for Pre-kindergarten-6th grades.
This year makes my 18th year teaching. All of those years have been here at South Side. My first year teaching I had the pleasure of teaching kindergarten. After that year, I moved to 4th grade, and I’ve been teaching 4th graders ever since. I LOVE it!! I am currently the chair of the Accelerated Reading Program, I’m on the RTI team & the Gifted and Talented Committee for our school, and I’m also a member of the PPC team.
My husband is Dale Battles. We have been together for 20 years and married for 19 of those years. We have two children together. Brooklyn is 17 & Blake is 15.
I love spending time with my family. Some of my favorite things to do are watching Blake play baseball, traveling anywhere, watching Cardinals baseball, going to the movies, and swimming in our pool during the summer.
