I am a wife, mom, daughter and a sister. I am a christian and proud member of the Texas A&M class of 2004. My husband and I grew up together in a small town called Alvin just near the coast. We both attended Texas A&M together. We had always dreamed of moving to the hill country to raise our family. My husband and I have been blessed with two beautiful girls. Our family loves the great outdoors.
I began my teaching career with an amazing team of reading interventionist after I finished my student teaching. I was very intimidated to join this amazing team of teachers on my campus but they needed an extra hand while a teacher was out on maternity leave. I am so glad I stepped up to the challenge. I learned so much from this experience. After several months of working with this amazing team I was ready to accept my first teaching position. I accepted a kindergarten position at a Title 1 school. I taught kindergarten for four years. Teaching kindergarten was everything I dreamed of and more! I loved my "littles"! After having some time at home with my own two children, I decided to come back and try something a little bit different. I taught second grade for 5 years before accepting a position as a Gifted & Talented Coordinator for two campuses. I am now entering my 10th year as a teacher. I am so excited about my position as a GT coordinator. I believe in allowing students to learn through exploration and creativity. When we allow students to guide their own learning, we can accomplish anything!! My students push me everyday to be a better teacher, a better human being!
Being a wife, mom, and teacher are not easy! I am honored that God has chosen me for this journey in life. I strive each day to make a difference, to make an impact, to touch someone's heart. I hope you will get to know me and follow me on my journey.
