I began my teaching career in 1992 after being a stay at home mom for several years. I taught third grade at Ivory Primary School for five years. After the birth of our second daughter, I once again became a stay at home mom. When our youngest began kindergarten, I began teaching first grade at Fairview Elementary. After two years in the classroom and completion of graduate school, I became the FES librarian in 2002 and remain in that position.
I have been married to Jim Golden since 1989. We have two daughters, Morgan and Kendall. Morgan is an RN and works primarily in home health. Kendall is a speech pathology graduate student at Louisiana Tech. We also have an amazing four year old grandson, Hannon. Although we only have one official pet, our 33 lb. cat named Purrcy, we feed four “neighborhood” cats and six raccoons!
I enjoy reading, flower gardening, traveling, and most especially spending time with my grandson.
