I attended Bonham High School and graduated in 2007.

I then went on to get my Bachelor’s Degree from Southeastern Oklahoma State University.
I have an Associates Degree and Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education.

I also have a certification in ESL (English as a Second Language) which allows to me work wtih students that are learning English as their second language.
Bailey Inglish is located at 201 E. 10th St. in Bonham.
This is my fourth year as a teacher at Bailey Inglish Headstart and Pre-K. I was selected as teacher of the year for Bailey Inglish in 2016. I love working for Bonham Independent School District. We treat students like family, and take care of each other! Before working as a Pre-K teacher, I was an assistant in one of our four year old headstart classrooms.
I decided to become a teacher at a very young age. My mother worked as a teaching assistant my entire childhood, and is still going strong. Watching her work and seeing the interactions between teachers and their students was the major motivator in my career choice. I love seeing the lightbulb go off in the eyes of a child when they understand a new concept. It is the most rewarding job I could imagine.
I have been happily married to my husband, Bobby, since 2006. We have one daughter, Amberly, that attends I.W. Evans Intermediate in 5th grade. We have two dogs, Cabella and Bailey, who we don’t consider pets, we consider them family!
My family and I enjoy boating, camping and playing board games. My daughter and I spend a lot of time together creating arts and crafts, doing experiences and making messes! She loves to make slime, glittery slime, puffy slime, any slime you can imagine! We also love baking and cooking together.
When I am not teaching I enjoy reading, singing, and creating crafts. I am also very interested in technology and learning ways to better incorporate it into my classroom. I spend a lot of time researching, playing with and learning how to use new, fun technology!
