I am so excited to get to know YOU! Here is a bit about me...
I am a home grown Allen teacher! I attended Anderson Elementary, Curtis Middle School, and Allen High School! I believe Allen is a great place to learn and grow! Previous to teaching, I have spent many years working with the Kids Club program, 2 years in the Ready, Set, Teach internship through Allen, and a semester working in SSI Kindergarten-6th grade! This will be my sixth year teaching in first grade at Cheatham!Me in 1st Grade!
I have a degree from the University of North Texas in ESL and Early Childhood-6th grade studies. I have ambitions of furthering my education and getting my master's degree in Early Childhood Education.
In my free time I love to read, go shopping, exercise, and spend time with my family, friends, pet cat- Phoebe and my Beagle puppy- Copper! I got married December 2015 to my husband A.J.! He just returned home from deployment with the Army National Guard from Southern Afghanistan. We just purchased our first home this November and we are so excited! I have a true love and passion for learning and teaching and I cannot wait to share my love and learning with your child!
