    Welcome!
    I am so glad that I have the opportunity to work with and teach your child this year! So you can get to know me a little better, here are a few facts about myself. 
     
    I graduated in 1995 from Concordia University (Whoosh!) in Austin with a degree in Elementary Education. I also got married in the same year to my wonderful husband. I am a busy preacher's wife, and am blessed with three children(one who goes to college this year) and an assortment of pets. 
     
    I love working with children, and feel honored and privileged to be able to teach yours this school year.  This will be my tenth year at Chisholm Ridge, and my sixth year teaching first grade.  Prior to this assignment, I have enjoyed substitute teaching, tutoring, and teaching elementary music. I have also taught second and third grade.  
     
    I'm a singer and keyboard/piano player, and sometimes for fun, pull out my ukulele.  I love music - singing it, playing it, and listening to it!  I also enjoy reading great books, crafting, and taking long walks.  
     
    Here are a few of my favorite things:
    *Chocolate(especially dark) *Sweet Tea *Chick Fil A *Panera  *Mardel *Music *Joes' Pasta and Pizza *Marshalls *Spending time with my family *Walking
