Teaching has always been my passion.

 After staying home with my own children for 10 years, I began teaching First Grade at Lovejoy Elementary in 2004.  I love to see the wonder children experience when exploring their world! First Graders love to learn!!  

I am thrilled to be teaching K-2 Gate 10 at Puster Elementary this year as well as 1st Grade Gate 10 at Lovejoy. Both my children were in the Gate 10 program at Lovejoy beginning in elementary.  My son, Jake, just graduated from Texas A & M University and is working in Cheyenne, WY and my daughter is a junior at University of Missouri (Mizzou) studying journalism.

My husband, Lou, is a recruiter and teaches tennis.  We have been married 25 years.  I grew up in Tyler, TX and am the youngest of six kids. In my spare time I love traveling!  I've been to Europe several times and have visited South America and Africa as well.  I also enjoy biking, hiking and reading but I treasure spending time with my family most of all.
