    I love being the Library Media Specialist at Vaughan! This will be my seventh year as an elementary librarian. Prior to becoming an LMS, I was a classroom teacher, academic coach, and GT teacher. I've also had some experience coaching and mentoring first year teachers in the Teach for America program.

    I attended Texas A&M University for my undergraduate degree. I have a Masters degree from Lamar University in Educational Technology Leadership. I have recently completed my Doctoral degree in Educational Leadership and wrote my dissertation on Social Emotional Learning. 

    I grew up in Allen and love this community. My husband, Wylie, and I have two boys, Jackson and Jacob, who attend Lovejoy High School. We have three dogs: Sophie, Maggie, and Sugar. We are fortunate to live close to grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and many friends.

    When I'm not working in library, I love to garden, shop for antiques, and cook. We have a family lake house in East Texas and frequently spend our weekends there.

    I am looking forward to seeing everyone in the library this year!
