I am a proud G-dub Eagle who lives in the community of Wylie. I have two sons Aiden (12) and Caleb (10) who keep me busy and always learning! Some of our favorite things to do together are swim, watch reality t.v., hanging out with friends and family, or going to Buc-ees! My son Aiden plays football at Burnett Jr. High and Caleb is starting Harrison Intermediate in the fall. I love to go to church, work-out, drink coffee, and enjoy nature. I grew up in Abilene, Texas and went there from Kindergarten through High School. Wylie reminds me alot of Abilene and when choosing a great community for my family to grow up in I chose Wylie, Texas because of the awesome, loving community and the Amazing school district. I truly believe there is no other district like Wylie ISD and I am proud to teach in our amazing school district. 

I received my Bachelor’s degree from The University of Texas at Dallas. I have experience teaching pre-school, kindergarten, first grade and this will be my first year teaching second grade. I believe it’s important to teach the whole child academically, emotionally, and physically in order for them to be well balanced and to reach their highest level of achievement. I love teaching children and believe I have the coolest job on the planet. Children are full of wonder, excitement, and love and it’s a joy to come along side parents to help their child grow and learn new things.
