All About Me . . .   

    I have been a teacher in Allen ISD for 10 1/2 years.   I began teaching as an instrucional aide, discovered a LOVE for it, and got my teacher certification.  I have taught 6th grade writing, 3rd grade math, science and social studies, and taught all grades (K-6) math and reading in SSI and Resource.  Currently, I teach 4th grade math and science!  I have served on the District's Math Cadre, and have served as both an academic and operational team lead.  I love to have fun while working alongside my students and believe they will enjoy learning in my class this year!  Prior to teaching, I was vice president of a business development organization in Los Angeles and also worked as a consultant while staying home for several years when my daughter was younger.

     A little more about me…  I have been married to my husband James for 21 years.  We have a 19 year-old daughter, Amari, I have a 30 year-old stepson, James Jr., and we have a sweet dog, Scruffy.  I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading and shopping.  I look forward to a great year at Cheatham!
