Assistant Principal

Welcome to Overpark! I am very excited about being your Assistant Principal. Let me tell you a little about me. I was born and raised in the small town of Charleston, Mississippi. In 2000, I married my wonderful husband, Jason. Our home is always a lively place thanks to our 5 amazing children: William and Jacob, Rebekah, Hannah, and Joshua. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends, reading, watching movies, playing games, and solving puzzles of all kinds.

In 2004, I graduated from Delta State University with my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I served as a teacher for 12 years. Most of those years were spent in third grade right here at OES. In 2017, I earned my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University and was blessed to be selected as Overpark’s Assistant Principal.

Once again, welcome to Overpark Elementary! I am so very proud and honored to serve the students, staff, and parents here at our school. I look forward to all of us working together to have the best year imaginable!
