Welcome to 6th grade! I am so excited to get this new year started with you! This will be my 20th year teaching in Allen ISD...10 years teaching middle school ELA, 7 years as an elementary librarian, 1 year as a 4th grade teacher, and this will be my 2nd year in 6th!
I grew up in Gonzales, Texas. While attending Texas A&M University, I studied Agricultural Journalism and interned at their agricultural radio station. However, since both of my parents are educators, I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. So, I also studied for my teaching certification in English and Journalism while there. It was quite the experience living in the two different educational worlds...but I learned to enjoy a variety of subjects, different people, different places, and different perspectives, which helps me be a better teacher.
I met my husband of 31 years at A&M and then followed him to the Dallas area. We have 3 kids who all went through Allen ISD. Robbie (26), Allison (23), and Nathan (19). They are all currently living at home and working while furthering their education online or in the Dallas area.
When not at school, my family loves spending time together outside with our dogs, visiting our farm in Gonzales, traveling to Disney, and watching sports, especially hockey...Go, Stars! Go, Allen Americans....and football. If you see me at any games or simply out and about in or community, please wave and say hi...I love to see my students out and about in the community, so make sure you wave and say hi!
I cannot wait to meet all of you...see your smiles! Please contact me if you have any questions.
