I have 30 years of teaching experience--23 years at Clarksville High School. I returned to the classroom after living and working in New York City for 15 years. During my stay in NYC, I co-founded with my husband David the Off West Broadway Theatre. My educational credits include a B/S with certification in English, Speech and Theatre from Austin Peay State University 1972, Master of Arts in Theatre, University of South Carolina 1974, Ordination in Ministry from New York City for Christian Studies 1991, Honorary Doctorate of Letters, Mid-Continent University, 2006. In addition to a full time teaching position, each year I direct two major productions, the Miss CHS Pageant, a departmental, school-wide lip sync contest, and a one act festival which features all 2nd and 4th-year theatre students. I am also a licensed, ordained minister and co-pastor at Faith Outreach Church North with my husband David. I am the proud mother of 6 Dachshunds and 1 Chiweenie.
