I began my career as an educator in Indiana in 2005. My husband and I moved to Texas in 2008 and we haven't looked back! I love the weather, the landscape, and most importantly, the people. The 2015-2016 school year will be my eleventh year of teaching. I love my job and feel like I'm one of the luckiest people on Earth because I get to make a significant difference in the lives of young people.
Outside of school, I am almost always with my family. I've been married since 2005 and we have two beautiful children, Benjamin (who we call Benja) and Brooklyn. They are the loves of my life! I also enjoy playing soccer. I have played since I was four years old, and although I've slowed down considerably, I still love the challenge of the game. I play on a co-ed team with my three sisters, one brother in law, and my husband who is our goalie.
