I'm super excited to be back at Woodcreek Middle School this year! Let me tell you all about me and my background. I am originally from Port Arthur, which is about an hour and 45 minutes from Humble. I graduated from Lamar State College with an Associate's degree in Criminal Justice and Lamar University in Beaumont with a Bachelor's degree also in Criminal Justice with a minor in dance. (Interesting combination, don't you think?) I always wanted to work in some area of law enforcement but it just wasn't the right time. I eventually decided to take a leap into the teaching world by substitute teaching in the Port Arthur ISD and loved it! At that time, I went back to Lamar University and received my teaching certification in Early Childhood through 4th grade. Since 2010, I also earned certifications in the areas of 4th grade through 8th grade, Special Education, Health, and more recently, Dance. I love teaching!!!
 
My husband, Tim and I have been married for 17 years this November. We moved from the Port Arthur area in late summer 2008. We have 3 children, 2 of them attend schools in the Humble ISD. Tristan, 20, Seth, 16, who is a sophomore at Kingwood Park High School, and Arianna, 13, is an 8th grader here at WMS. We also have two yellow lab puppies named Zeus and Athena! My family loves to travel and venture to new places. And, the really ironic thing about all this is that Tim is from New Zealand! We recently travelled to New Zealand for the past two summers and truly enjoyed ourselves in the absolute beauty that the country offers. We have also travelled to Tahiti. This past summer my husband and Seth traveled to Mt. Everest base camp.
 
Some of my favorites are:

Drink - Sprite
Store - Target
Holiday - Christmas
Season - Winter

Thank you for letting me educate your child!!! I hope to learn as much from them as they do from me.
