Welcome to 6th Grade! I am thrilled to begin an exciting new year at Olson. I can't wait to meet all my new students and welcome those back that I know from my own kids!
A little about me! I taught 3rd grade Writing and Science and 6th grade Math for 4 years at Rountree Elementary in Allen. This will be my 8th year of teaching and my 6th year teaching 6th grade. I graduated from Baylor University ages ago with a business degree. Over the years, I developed such a passion for helping and teaching kids that I left my 16 year career in sales to become a teacher. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 22 years this year and we have 3 kids and our furry little girl...our Golden-Doodle named Kona. My kids are all Olson Otters! My daughter, Annabelle, is a senior at Allen High School. My oldest son, Caden, a freshman at Lowery and my "baby", Levi, is a 5th grader at Olson this year.
We love living in Allen and I am so blessed to now get to teach here too. My kids keep me busy with soccer, football, basketball, and running. We are an athletic family and LOVE to go to the beach. I have run 6 marathons and many 1/2 marathons. I am a breast cancer survivor and am blessed to be cancer free for 5 years! I am passionate about lots of things including: READING, running, eating healthy, yoga, traveling, cooking, the Dallas Cowboys, Baylor and my students! I am so blessed to be teaching in Allen at such a great school. I can't wait to see what my 6th graders and I discover on our journey this year. Please contact me throughout the year if you have any questions or concerns!
