• I've been teaching for 19 years, this will be my 11th year to teach here in Allen. I am proud to say I have been here since Olson opened. 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 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.   

    I'm looking forward to learning more about my new students.  

    On a more personal note, I have three grown children Ashley, Amanda, and Michael. I am a grandmother (Gigi) to my two beautiful granddaughters.
