About Me

  • Howdy! This is my 10th year in education. I graduated from Texas A&M in 2007 with a B.S. in Animal Science, then again with a M.Ed. in 2015. I started my career in teaching after volunteering for an elementary school in college. I loved it!! So, here I am ten years later doing what I love :-) I am looking forward to meeting and working with each of you this year!
