    I am so Excited to be Teaching 6th Grade!
    This will be my 26th year in education, and my 20th year at Reed. I've taught 2nd,4th,5th, and 6th grades. I am looking forward to working with both my former and new Reed Owls. This year, I am excited to take on the role of being the SSI teacher for the grade level. I can't wait to watch my students grow and succeed in all of the content areas. 
    I grew up in Allen. After graduating from Allen High School, I attended North Texas State University where I earned my degree in Elementary Education. I began my teaching career in Allen at Vaughan Elementary. After staying home with my own kiddos for several years, I came to Reed Elementary and found my forever home with my Reed students and families. 
    I have two wonderful sons and an amazing "daughter in love." My oldest son, Grady, is a Consultant and lives in Dallas with his wife, Brittani, who works keeping people healthy as an Exercise Physiologist. My youngest son,Grant, is a Private Equity Associate in Houston. They are the light of my life and make me so proud to be their mom! The other member of our family, and arguably the most beloved, is my sweet doggo, Pippa Rue. She is smart, sassy, and the true queen of the family! If you don't believe me...just ask her! She also asked that to mention that she was the 2018-2019 Reed Elementary Custest Pet Award winner (pictured here in her crown)! 
    This is going to be an outstanding year for the 6th graders! I am looking forward to spending the year learning and growing with my students!
