Coalgate Schools have always been my home. I was born and raised in Coalgate. I began Headstart at age 4 and graduated from Coalgate High School in 1991. I received my Bachelor of Arts on May 1995 from East Central University. In December of 2008 I received my Masters of Education from East Central University.
I have been married to Allen Chapman for 23 years. We have two beautiful daughters. Alyson, 20, is proudly supporting the East Central Tigers. She is a member of ZETA, CLC, and recently began a Tigers for Tigers chapter at ECU. Kallie, 12, is in the 7th grade at Wallace Bird Middle School where she is proudly marching in the Coalgate Wildcat Band. She is also a member of the Chickasaw Nation VEX-IQ Robotics team. (I also have a 3 year old “fur” daughter I would love to show you a picture of. )
My favorite thing to do in my spare time is read, read, read!!!
I began teaching at Coalgate High School in 1998. I taught Social Studies for 4 years. I moved to Emerson Elementary in 2002 where I taught 3rd grade for 4 years. I taught 1 year of 5th and 6th grade Spelling, 4 years of 2nd grade, and now I teach 5th & 6th Special Education.
