Business & Marketing Teacher
I am a 1988 graduate of Huntsville High School. I graduated with Mrs. Wiggins and Mrs. Walden. Our class was the last class to graduate from “The Hill”.
I attended the University of Arkansas. I received a B.S.E. in the spring of 2000 and an M.A.T. in the spring of 2001. I taught at Gravette Middle School from 2001-2004 and started at Huntsville High School in the fall of 2004.
I teach Business and Marketing. I am the advisor for the Youth Apprenticeship work program. I sponsor FBLA, DECA and I co-sponsor the class of 2021 along with Mrs. Wiggins.
I am a continuous learner. I attend many conferences and workshops to stay up-to-date on the latest trends in business, education, and technology.
I have been teaching since the fall of 2001. Previous to that I worked for Wal~Mart and JB Hunt having held various positions with both companies.
As a business & marketing teacher, I bring a lot of personal business experience into the classroom. This gives me the ability to relate real world experiences and examples to the concepts taught in the classroom.
I have been married to Tim DeLaPorte since 2014. I have 2 daughters. Shelby graduated in 2013 and lives in Huntsville, AR. And Amber is currently a senior at Huntsville High School. I have 2 wonderful grandsons and I have a dog named Scout.
I run to help relieve stress. I like to read mysteries when I have time. Mostly I love doing things outside. Summer is my favorite season. I love kayaking, hiking, bike riding, motorcycle riding, swimming, hanging out at the river, etc.
