Hi, I consider it a privilege to have your child in Keyboarding 5. I graduated from Arkansas Tech University and have been teaching in the Russellville School District since 1996. I taught business classes at Russellville High School for 17 years before coming to RIS in 2013. I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling whenever possible, as well as gardening and other outdoor activities.
