This is my 4th year at Panhandle High School but overall my 23th year of teaching. I teach high school math and will be teaching Algebra I this year.
This will be my 23rd year of teaching overall. I moved here from Spur, TX, where I taught all the high school math classes and coached calculator apps, number sense, and mathematics in both the high school and JH. I was also the JH UIL coordinator. Before I was at Spur, I was a high school math teacher and coach at Water Valley, TX. In addition to teaching all the high school math and the UIL academic events, I also coached volleyball, basketball, and tennis. I was fortunate to be a part of a state championship in volleyball and I got to watch my oldest son win a state championship in basketball and go to state in tennis.
I am married to Brent Kirkland, the high school principal. We have been blessed with 2 children. Our oldest son, Kellan, is a teacher and coach at Motley County HS. Our youngest son, Kaison, is a senior at Texas Tech University. We also have 1 dog, a catahoula, named Sadie.
I enjoy watching any sport in my free time. The Olympics have been so fun to watch. I also like to play golf with my family and go to the movies when time allows. I love the TV show “Friends” and still watch reruns.
