This is my 16th year at Reed and my 18th year in Allen ISD. I have taught second, third, and fourth grades at Reed, and I have taught first, fifth and sixth grades in other buildings and districts. In addition to my elementary teaching experience, I have written curricula and have trained adults in various capacities. I have a degree in English from SMU so reading and writing are very dear to my heart. I want all the children in my class to LOVE reading!
My husband Ken and I have been married forever. My younger daughter Kami is a recent Allen High School graduate and a former Reed Owl who is attending UNT in Denton. My older daughter Katie is married to Sean. They are great parents to my first grandchild, Raigan, who turns three in September. And I also have a new grandson Braxton who is six months old. Being their Mimi is a ton of fun! I also have three cats and three dogs that provide me with lots of storytelling material.
Third grade has always been my favorite grade to teach! I'm looking forward to a great year getting to know all of my students and their families better. It is going to be a terrific year!!!
