Welcome to the 2018-2019
This year will be my 15th year as an educator. I have a Master's degree in Elementary Education with a Minor in Child Psychology. My early childhood through 8th grade teacher certification includes general education, as well as ESL and Gifted & Talented education. I am excited to be a part of the GATE Academy again this year.
I am a Louisiana native who was born in Baton Rouge. My elementary, middle, high school, undergraduate, and graduate years of education were on the LSU campus ~ so needless to say I bleed purple and gold. While studying abroad in London I met my husband, Nick, who is also an LSU Tiger. After graduation Nick and I relocated to the DFW area where I have taught first, second and third grade in Richardson ISD, McKinney ISD, and now in our home city of Allen. Nick is also in the field of education teaching elementary PE in McKinney ISD so we often refer to him as Coach Relle. We have two energetic boys; Jack (5th grade) and Noah (1st grade), and a precious cocker spaniel named Cooper. Vaughan also happens to be our neighborhood school so my boys and I are all three Vaughan Vikings.
Teaching is my passion and I am grateful to have the opportunity to work with your child.
Please let me know if you need anything.
I am looking forward to an exciting year with my third graders as we 'Pack Our Bags For Our Best Voyage Yet!'
