    This is my tenth year of teaching in Allen.  I have a passion for teaching and developing a love of math in students.  I look forward to a great year with this class. 


    I grew up in Haskell, Texas (a very small town near Abilene) and attended Texas Tech University graduating with two degrees in Finance and Business Education.   My husband is Mark Paxton.  He grew up here and graduated from Allen High and Oklahoma University.  Needless to say, we are a "house divided" during football season!!!  My prediction is, and always will be, that Tech will beat OU this year!
    Together we have five children, a daughter-in-law, a son-in-law, and one beautiful granddaughter.  Plus, we are gaining another daughter-in-law in September!  Daniel, Kristen, and Hattie live in Melissa.  Daniel is a teacher at Curtis.  Zach teaches at Shelton.  Conner and Kendall work in Dallas. Finally, Zane and Ellen live in Buda where Ellen is a teacher.
