My name is Mrs. Carpenter.  I am married with a two-year old daughter.  I enjoy watching University of Kentucky basketball and cheerleading!  I also enjoy photography, business marketing, graphic design, and event planning.  My favorite artistic mediums are ceramics, graphic design, sculpture and drawing.

As an educator, I believe it is important to be a continual learner and stay connected with a professional community.  I am an active member in several professional and community organizations: Hardin County Educator's Association (HCEA), Kentucky Educator's Association (KEA), Kentucky Art Educator's Association (KyAEA), and the National Art Educator's Association (NAEA).

I am a Hardin County native.  I attended Howevalley Elementary, West Hardin Middle School and Central Hardin High School.  After graduating from Central Hardin High School, I attended Western Kentucky University where I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Art Education in 2008.  I continued my education and earned my Master of Arts degree in Teacher Leadership at Bellarmine University in 2012.  I am currently completing my second Master of Arts degree (Rank I) in School Counseling at the University of the Cumberlands.  

I began teaching in the Hardin County School District in 2008 at Woodland Elementary School as the Related Arts teacher.   After my first year of teaching, I began teaching Visual Art and Arts & Humanities at North Hardin High School.  I have taught Visual Art I, Visual Art II, Visual Art III - Drawing, Visual Art III - Graphic Design, Visual Art III - Sculpture, Visual Art IV, and Advanced Placement Studio Art.  I concluded my ninth year of teaching at North Hardin and decided to come back "home" to Central Hardin.  

As I enter my tenth year of teaching, I am exciting to begin the 2017-18 school year at Central Hardin High School!
