I received my Bachelor's Degree from Murray State and I also have my Master's in Reading/Writing. This is my 13th year teaching! I have taught Kindergarten, Reading Recovery, 2nd grade Reading, and  3rd grade Reading. 


I grew up in Hopkinsville and graduated from Christian County High in 1996. I have taught at South Christian for 13 years. I was a Reading Recovery teacher for 4 years and have been trained thoroughly in this area. 


Family-I have two daughters, Gracie (12) and Emma (6). Gracie plays the flute in band at HMS and Emma is in dance at Brooke Bailey. I also have two stepsons Tim (12) and Teddy (10). Tim is on the soccer team at HMS and Teddy plays soccer for the YMCA. My husband  is Ryan Marvel and he is an engineer from Oklahoma. We love to spend time together as a family and make sure to have family dinners as often as possible. I love to travel and experience new things!!
