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 a avid reader myself and I love sharing my love of reading and watching my students grow as readersthroughout 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 2 beautiful granddaughters.
