Hello Families and Students, 

This is my 9th year teaching and my first year as a Burnett Jr. High Buccaneer. I am trilled about my new adventure teaching 8th grade ELA and work at one of the best campuses in Wylie and in the BEST district in Texas. I have two sons that keep me busy and in the know. Aiden is a freshman at Wylie East and Caleb will attend Burnett as a 7th grader this year. This will be my 6th year teaching in Wylie ISD and I love our community we get to share together. 

I recieved my Bachelors in Psychology from UT Dallas and I have taught pre-school, kindergarten, first grade, and second grade. I have a passion for teaching students lifelong skills and character development that will enrich them in any path they may choose to follow. 

Join me as we make this the greatest year yet!!
