Started teaching at South Side Bee Branch in August of 2007
I currently teach 7 courses:
Keyboarding ~ KEY
Accounting I & II ~ ACCT
Introduction to Business Communications Technology ~ IBCT
Entrepreneurship ~ Entre
Social Media ~ SM
Computer Business Applications ~ CBA
I have only taught at SSBB!
I have had MANY job experiences, which each one has given me a great insight on the many different sides of business: Housekeeper in a hotel – Waitress – System Administrator/Payroll Clerk/Human Resource in a Hospital – Accounts Payable for a corporation – Bookkeeper with a food chain – Receptionist in many different office settings – United States Postal Carrier – Cashier – Store Manager….that is all I can think of for now! Again it has given me great insights for my students when it comes to Business in the REAL WORLD!
Married to Jeff Deckard since June 1994
I have two children: Daughter ~ Casey, she is in her 2nd year of college at the College of the Ozarks in Hollister, MO
Son ~ Payton, he is in the 5th grade here at SSBB, he is in Ms. Johnson’s homeroom class
We have a small ranch, that we like to call “the little -d Ranch”. I have to start with my 2 wonderful Boston Terrier Bulldogs; Tallie & Marshall. Payton’s lovely sidekick, Dipstick & a barn cats. We have several head of Quarter horses for pleasure riding to Mini ponies for Cart rides. Jeff & Payton work with 4-H Poultry Chain chickens for the last several years ONLY to hold the 2017 Arkansas State Fair Grand Championship 4-H Poultry Chain title, and Payton was indited into the Purple Circle. To finish off our little ranch, we have started our cattle herd by getting a couple of calves donated to this great circle of life here at the little -d Ranch!
What I LOVE to do when I am not at school is ANYTHING with my sweet family. Which could consist of taking my Boston Terriers(Tallie & Marshall) on a daily outing ~ riding trails on the Buffalo river horseback(on any of our 11 horses on the little -d ranch), helping my husband with the Damascus Road Cowboy Church or traveling with our ministry; Cowboy Up for Christ.
