Current Position:

This will be my 5th year at Paris ISD. This year, I have been blessed with the rare opportunity to move up with my students. I will be teaching Algebra 1 to freshman.

Previous Position:

 I started my career in education as a paraprofessional. I worked at Decatur High School for 3 years in their Content Mastery Center. After moving to Paris, I was privileged to work in their Content Mastery Center at Paris High School for 2 years. I went back to school to obtain my degree and certification. I returned to the district for the 2013-2014 school year and taught 7th grade math lab. I moved up last year and taught 8th grade math and pre-algebra.

Family Information:

I am married to Eddie LaRue. Eddie is the Network Administrator for Paris ISD. We have three amazing kids, Joey, MacKenzie and Nic. MacKenzie and Joey will both be on the high school campus this year. Our youngest, Nic, will be a 3rd grader at Justiss Elementary. We also have a Chihuahua(Mojo) and a Yorkshire Terrier(Lil' Scrappy Doo).
