I love teaching life science and try as much as possible to relate it to the students lives. In 2002, I decided to go back to school to get my teaching degree. I spent the 20 years prior to that working and raising my three children. After much sacrifice and support from my family, I graduated magna cum laude in 2005 from Texas Women's University in Denton. This is my thirteenth year of teaching in the EMS-ISD and my 9th year to teach 7th grade science at Highland. I feel so lucky to be here (the staff and students are wonderful) and I enjoy teaching this age group.
All three of my children attended Highland Middle School. My oldest two graduated from BHS and my youngest from SHS. I have two grandchildren. I have one dog, Huck. When I'm not at school, I enjoy reading, playing games, and spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy supporting the students and you may see me at a ball game, band performance, and other student activities.
