I graduated from Hamburg High School in 1988.
I graduated from The University of AR Monticello in 1993.
I ave a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and in the 2015-2016 school year I earned my certification for teaching Career Development.
I have been a teacher for 15 years.
I started teaching at Montrose Academy where I was an 11th grade English Teacher.for one semester.
My first job in Elementary School was when I worked for Morehouse Parish School Board. I taught 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grade Language Arts while I worked there.
I was hired in Hamburg to teach 4th grade Science/Social Studies and after a couple of years, I was moved to the 4th grade Language Arts classroom. Since then, I have taught 5th and 6th grade Language in Allbritton Elementary, until we were moved to the Middle School.
I now teach 8th grade Czareer Development, and hopefully circumstances will allow me to teach in this area until I retire.
I married Chuck White in 2011, and we live in the Promise Land community.
My husband now owns a Catfish Farm, Rockin’W Bucking Bulls, and is part owner in Riley Paving Company. In his younger years he rode bulls in the PBR until he retired in 1997.
I have 3 children, Cody Welch, (26), Rayne Welch( (23) and Nik Wood (19).
All of my children went to Hamburg School from pre-k to 12th grade.
My son, Cody, works as a PR rep. for a company out of Louisiana, but lives in Little Rock, AR.
My daughter graduated Arkansas Career Training Institute with a degree in Screen Printing in 2015. and currently lives in Hamburg.
Nik is currently working for Riley Paving Company and will continue his education in the spring. .
My sttep son is Colby White (27) also lives in Promise Land and works for Riley Paving Company as a paving machine operator, and sbuys and sells buckin bulls. He has a 2 month old son, Cashden Ryder White who is a welcome addition to our family.
We have 3 dogs that live at our house, my husband has a miniature Rat Terrier named Fluffy, and my dog is a fat lazy pit bull named Rowdy. I have a girl blue pit named Layla. I have 4 grand-dogs that belong to Colby. 2 great danes, (Zena and Ziggy), a pit bull (Coco), and a miniature Australian Sheppard (Lilly). My newest baby grand-dog belongs to Nik and Courtney (his fiance) he is a miniature Jack Russell (Jax) and my daughter Rayne has a long haired chihuahua named Weezy.
When I am not teaching, I like to fly with my husband in his paraplane and take arial photographs. Any time that I hang out with my family and friends is a great time to me.
