    Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!  I am so excited to be back for my sixth year as a Lindsey Lonestar teaching Sixth Grade Math and Science. 

    I am originally from the great state of Ohio where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Education from the University of Cincinnati. I consider myself a Bearcat, but I am an even bigger Ohio State Buckeye fan. Since living in Texas, I have taught fourth, fifth, and sixth grades as well as Special Education. 

    I have been married to my high school Sweetheart for almost 32 years and we have four children ranging in ages from 13-27 as well as two precious granddaughters. Rounding out the family fun are two lively labs, Weston and Whitey who keep us running and throwing toys. I enjoy spending time with my family, and we can often be found at sporting events or taking vacations to the beach. 

    I am looking forward to getting to know each of my 6th grade scientists and mathematicians and encouraging them in their love for learning!
