I am from Owingsville, Kentucky which is located in Bath County. I graduated from Bath County High School in 1998. I attended Morehead State University in Morehead, Kentucky where I received a Bachelor of Agriculture Science with an emphasis in Horticulture and a Master of Career & Technical Education. I completed my student teaching at Logan County High School in the spring of 2012.
From 2005-2011, I was employed as a Cooperative Extension Agent for 4-H/Youth Development in both Tennessee and Kentucky. In 2007 I serviced as the Gateway Regional Agriculture Marketing Specialist in Mt. Sterling, Kentucky.
In 2011 I married and moved to Scottsville, my husband’s hometown. I am happily married to Robin Dalton, Agriculture Teacher at South Warren High School. We live on a small 30 acre farm and we have two Australian Shepherds, Lexie & Winston, and cat named Toes, a rabbit named Bun-Bun, as well as an Angus cattle herd, and Guernsey show cattle.
I have a great love of agriculture as it is part of my heritage. I hope to educate and instill knowledge and love for agriculture in my students. This will be my second year at Franklin-Simpson and I am looking forward to it and to having each of you this school year.
