This is my ninth year of teaching as an 8th grade ELA teacher, and my third year as a teacher in Wylie ISD! I graduated from Wylie High School in 2004 & always pictured myself coming back and teaching in my hometown. I love what I do and I love working with 8th grade students, so I am super excited to be here & work with you all this year.
I am a firm believer in challenging my students and I will push you when you don't feel like pushing yourself-I promise you will thank me later. I have your best interest at heart and I know you are capable of more than you realize. My goal this year is to help you see that potential and prepare you for your next step in life's journey: high school!
