I was born and raised in Rochester, New York and moved to Houston in 1991 at age 21. I have three daughters who have received their educations in Humble ISD. Two of my daughters have graduated from Kingwood Park High School and my youngest is in 5th Grade this year.
My affiliation with Bear Branch Elementary began in 2002 as a parent PTA volunteer and I joined the Bear Branch staff in 2005.
I am a graduate of the University of Houston and I became certified to teach in 2007.
I worked with students as a Resource and Intervention teacher for 5 years then taught 5th grade for 3 years. This year will be my 5th year teaching 3rd Grade. I am very excited to be teaching 3rd Grade as a self contained class again this year!
My teaching certifications include Special Education Early Childhood thru 12th Grade and Early Childhood thru 6th Grade Generalist/English as a Second Language. I am Reading Recovery trained, Dyslexia trained, and am a past member of the Lake Houston Math Collaborative.
