    I am so excited to join the Vaughan Viking Family this year as the 6th Grade GATE ELA/SS Teacher. This will be my 6th year teaching 6th Grade GT ELA. My family moved to Allen when I was in 2nd Grade, and I am a proud Allen Graduate.
     I attended Collin College and received my Bachelors from The University of Texas at Dallas in Interdisciplinary Studies. I also participated in the Disney College Program where I spent 8 months working at different attractions, such as: Hollywood Studios Backlot Tour, Frozen Summer Funland, and Fastpass+.
    I have been married to my husband, Erick, for almost 6 years now. We love traveling together, but also spending time with our families. We have a pug, Maximus. He just turned 6 in July and believes he is a human baby. He enjoys watching movies, eating, and sleeping. In my spare time I enjoy reading and crafting. I particularly enjoy Period or Historical Fiction novels, but I am currently reading the Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief series for the first time. 
    This school year is going to be full of reading, rigor, and culture. I look forward to bringing the world of literature and culture to life in the classroom for the students.
