A Little About Me
    I attended Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Child Study and Language Development.
    I began my teaching career in Garland I.S.D., teaching fifth grade and also third grade.  After transferring to Allen I.S.D., I taught at Norton Elementary and then helped open Kerr Elementary in 2000.  Next, it was so exciting to be part of Cheatham  Elementary's grand opening in 2010!  It's been a blast so far, and I'm looking forward to another fantastic year!
    I got married to Jeff Kirkland in November 2018 and love spending time with him, my 18-year-old step son Collin, and our sweet and playful dog Rocky.  Besides teaching, I always look forward to reading, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
