Welcome to 6th grade world cultures! I'm excited to explore the world with you! I am from Houston and a Stratford graduate. I graduated from Texas A&M University with a bachelor's of interdisciplinary studies. This is my 9th year in education and in SBISD. My husband is a math teacher in Cy-Fair ISD, and we have two children. I enjoy baking, traveling, spending time exploring book stores (and of course, Target!), and spending time with my family. I'm looking forward to a great year with you all!
