All About Me

Howdy Mustangs!

I am entering my 16th year of teaching in the State of Texas.  I have enjoyed and learned something new every year.  I believe students learn best when they are in an environment that is fun, safe, challenging and engaging.  I believe school should be a place where students are free to make mistakes, to build upon them and to develop a mindset to keep trying.  

I am the happy wife for 16 years to my "softball sweetheart" Jim.  We were blessed with a fur baby, Sasha, 10 years ago.  After several years of praying, we were blessed with Zyien, whom will be 5 years old this year.  He has the easiest birthday around 11/11/11 and he finds that hilarious.

He keeps us on our toes and is constantly reminding us that life is definitely worth living and giving up is not an option.

I look forward to extending my family this year by meeting 44 new 2nd graders, their families and their dreams.  I hope to teach them vigorously, model for them relentlessly and love them unconditionally.

We have an open door policy in our classroom and I can't wait to me you all!
