I am a fun-loving, energetic gal who loves being with family and friends. I enjoy reading (YA Dystopians and Greek Mythology lately), hunting for 'treasures' at flea markets that can be re-purposed into something interesting, and watching cartoons (currently Trollhunters and Voltron are my favorites). I have been married for 18 years to my wonderful, supportive husband and we have four adorable children, 1st through 9th grade, who keep us on our toes and make us utilize every moment of the day. We have lots of fun as a family. Being silly and laughing are a few of our favorite activities. As a family we enjoy canoeing, relaxing outside a pop-up camper in the woods, and LOVE going on road trips to various festivals around Texas!
I love teaching students and enjoy the journey that just one year can take you on. My goal for each child is to be a well-rounded, productive citizen who is a lifelong learner. This will be my 15th year teaching. During my years, I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade with 12 of the years being with 5th graders. I believe in a hands-on, discovery style of learning where students have an active participation in their education. We learn best by doing!!!
