I am a native Texan and a proud graduate of Texas A&M. Gig 'Em Aggies! I have two sons of whom I am very proud. My oldest, Jason, has a Masters' degree from UTA and is married to an interior designer. They have a four year old son, Charlie and a one year old daughter, Violet. I love being a grandmother!. My youngest, Jonathan, is a graduate of TCU and is an accountant with Deloitte.
This is my 16th year at Highland and my 22nd year to teach ( I took off several years to raise my sons). I have taught every grade from 7th - 12th grades. My passion is teaching 8th graders because I believe I can make a difference with this age student. I am head of the English department at Highland and am also a sponsor of The National Junior Honor Society.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, cooking, and doing needlework.
I will do my best to make sure that your child has a successful year and that he/she is equipped to be successful in high school.
