About Me

 I grew up in SBISD, attended RCE, MMS and graduated from Stratford High School. I received my teaching degree at Texas State University.  I am starting my 25th year of teaching. I have worked in Cy-Fair ISD, taught 4th Grade at Wilchester and worked as a reading specialist /Dyslexia support teacher in SBISD.

 This is my fifth year teaching 6th Grade Social Studies.

I look forward to teaching your child about our wonderful world! I believe in technology integration and learning to work together in teams. This is the direction of our changing work-force culture, and we will be busy learning these very valuable skills.

I have twin sons, age 14, who keep me busy after school!
