Degrees and Certifications:
This is my first year working in Wylie ISD. I previously taught for 15 years in Allen at their Lowery Freshman Center. I've taught both Art and English, and I love creating--whether writing a story or creating illustrations for one!
I grew up in the Richardson/Plano area and graduated from PESH. I have my B.A. in English from Texas A&M University in College Station and a minor in art. I've also taken several graduate courses in both art education and illustration. My personal areas of expertise are in drawing and painting (in particular colored pencil, watercolor, and acrylic). In my spare time, I enjoy traveling to Alsace, France and staying at my friends' 400-year-old farmhouse and painting the pastoral countryside and charming old buildings there!
I am the youngest of three girls and my sisters are my best friends. I have two dogs--a terrier mix named Gaston and a Pomeranian named Clementine that are probably far too spoiled. When I'm not making art, I enjoy cooking, reading, and watching Dancing with the Stars or old episodes of The Big Bang Theory.
