I graduated from Doniphan High School. Then I attended Southeast Missouri State University and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Speech Communication and a minor in Library Science. I received my Master's Degree in Remedial Reading and a Specialist Degree in Community College Teaching from Arkansas State University.
My teaching experience has been varied. First, I taught Speech Communication, Psychology, and Sociology in Couch, Missouri. Then, I taught fourth grade in Poplar Bluff. When we moved to Arkansas I taught college level Speech Communication Classes and Developmental Reading at Arkansas State University. Next, we moved back to Missouri and I taught Developmental Reading at Central Missouri State University. Later, we moved to Illinois and I was a Counselor for the TRIO program at Illinois Central State and Heartland Community College. Along the way I also wrote teachers manuals for Reading Text Books, conducted workshops for teachers preparing to take the State Teacher's Exam in Arkansas, taught Driver's Improvement Classes in Illinois, and was a Counselor for Air Force Students at Whiteman Air Force Base.
Class Schedule for 2019-2020
I work on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The Library is open everyday but the shared aid may be busy helping other teachers. If you need to use the library and the aid is gone, check in the secretary's office in the middle school building. She will be happy to return to the library and help you.
My best advice for students:
READ! READ! READ! AND
READ SOME MORE!
I am married to Jackie Rowe and we have two wonderful children. I am the proud Nana of the most beautiful grandchildren in the whole world and I have pictures to prove it!
