Jadyn and Scott      Daughters     Michael and Kendra  Waterfall             Graduates



    I've been teaching for 25 years, this will be my 15th year to teach here in Allen. I am proud to say I have been here since Olson opened. I love that I have been in Allen long enough to see two of my 1st grade classes graduate.  Before that, I taught 10 years in Mesquite ISD. I love teaching first grade.

    I am an avid reader myself and I love sharing my love of reading and watching my students grow as readers and writers throughout the year. I'm also a math nerd so if there is a new strategy or idea, I will be researching to find out how I can use it in my classroom.   

    On a more personal note, I have three grown children,  Ashley, Amanda, and Michael.   I am a grandmother (Gigi) to my two beautiful granddaughters, Adriana and Ophelia.  I love spending time with my family.   I look forward to learning more about my students and their families.
