I started my teaching career at B. McDaniel Middle School in Denison, TX in 2002. I taught 8th grade there for two years before coming to Madill Elementary School. Before teaching, I worked at Southeastern Electric Cooperative in Durant for 11 years.
I am married to Devin Birdsong, Rock Creek High School principal. We have been married for 33 years and have one son, Derek. Derek and his wife, Allyson have two children, Dawson and Sunnie.
I always tell people that school is my hobby. I love working with kids and learning new ways to help them achieve their goals. When I’m not at school, I love to be at home or spending time with my grandkids.
