Current Position:

I started teaching in Ozark in 2001. I taught 5th grade the first year I was at Ozark. I was moved to 4th grade the next year and have been there ever since. I currently teach just literacy classes right now. I am blessed to be able to work with Mrs. Yother and Mrs. Hitcher. The fourth grade year is very hard but the students are wonderful and make all the work worth it.

Previous Position:

I started my teaching career in Mulberry at Marvin Elementary. I taught Kindergarten for 3 years there. I loved being with the little kiddos but I really wanted to be a Hillbilly. It is really true once a Hillbilly always a Hillbilly. It is my passion to help educate Hillbillies. I love my job!

Family Information:

I am married to James, we have been married since 1993. We have two children, Caitlen and Colton. Caitlen is 20 and attends UAFS in Fort Smith. Colton is a Senior at OHS. He plays football and baseball.  We are very proud to be Hillbillies.

There are several McChristian pets Cheddar, an angora rabbit, and Lucy and StellaBrett, guiena pigs, live in the classroom during the school year and then come home during summer and Christmas breaks. I just resently found out that Lucy is really a Luke and we are going to have baby guiena pigs! Luke now lives with Mrs .Erica at OKC. We have a hedgehog names Quill Sonic that stays at home with the Leopard Gegeko name Lenny. Then there are the dogs, Lady is a poodle, Pippa is a Yorkie, Max is a mix, and Reed is a hunderd twenty pound Lab.

Personal Information:

I enjoy reading and writing stories. I also like to make jewlery and do crafts, but my favorite activity is spending time with my family. I love embrassing my children and cheering them on in any activity they are involved in.  I also like surfing the web and learning new, exciting things.
