This school year marks my 25th year teaching English in Humble ISD and my first year at K Park. I feel honored to be here and am so proud to call K Park my new home. I'm a 1995 graduate from Humble High School and an alumni of the University of Houston, where I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature and Education. I have two beautiful children whom I adore! My daughter, Faith, is 21 and graduated from AHS in 2019. My son, Anthony, is 13 and an 8th grader. As a parent, I understand the qualities we look for in our child's teacher. I strive to be the type of teacher I would want for my own daughter or son. I have a nurturing, motherly style and take pride in building relationships with all students. I truly want them to feel safe, encouraged, and important every day. I adore all things literature and writing and use my passion to inspire my students. My personal motto is a quote from one of my favorite novels, To Kill a Mockingbird, "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view." In my spare time, I love fishing, reading mystery novels, enjoying family time and watching Astros baseball.
