I'm so excited to be at Oaks Elementary for my 3rd year as your librarian!  
My husband, Charly, and I moved here from Redmond, WA (Seattle) four years ago and are still trying to get used to the heat.  I'm loving the fact that I can grow flowers year round here, it's rather like the tropics. I have put my winter clothing away, no more big coats!
Charly and I have two children, Brian and Rachel who live in Phoenix, AZ which is where we lived for 18 years.  (That's where I became a teacher.) We also have a naughty chocolate lab named Koko; she keeps me busy.  She is a counter surfer and loves to steal socks and paper receipts hoping that we'll chase her!  She provides an endless supply of stories!.
I taught 2nd grade for a year at Whispering Pines. Before we moved to Houston I was a school librarian in WA, a reading teacher in PA , and a 3rd grade teacher in AZ.  We've been "state hopping" but began in TX.  My family is from Denton, and my husband is from Dallas.  We met our senior year at North Texas State. We actually lived in Kingwood a long time ago, our son was born here, good memories! I'm excited to be back this year and look forward to a wonderful year!
