Hi my name is Mrs. Billingsley on the roster but my students call me Mrs. D. My passion for teaching began in the VPK classroom of my youngest sister. She struggled at first academically and socially and watching the transformation she made spark the belief in me that I needed to follow after my dream of becoming a teacher. At the time I was recently married and dropped out of the education program. It was not until another two months after watching her graduate from VPK that I realized I needed to get back to school. So I did I enrolled in Rasmussen College, October 2012. I started off in the Education program but when reports of lays off in Marion County were made in 2013; I knew I needed to have a degree that allowed me options so I switched to Business Management. I graduated with honors Cum Laude Business Management Bachelors of Science, June 2016. I was also a part of an elite group that was awarded with Leadership.
During the process of completing my education I gave birth to my first child November 2013 and had my second just a few weeks after walking at my graduation for my Bachelor’s degree in August 2016.
In my free time I enjoy writing and hope one day to become a published writer. I enjoy spending time with my family and cooking. I love reading even though recently I have not had much time to read for leisure most of my reading is for professional development. I love to travel I have been to several states in the US, outside of the US I have traveled to Belize, Honduras, Mexico, and Bahamas.
