•         Hello! Thank you visiting my class information pages.  I grew up in a rural town named DeLeon, Texas.   I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education at McMurry University in Abilene, Texas.  Although this is my fourth year teaching at Bryson, I  have 25 years teaching experience in another district.   I have three sons, Jacob-27, Colson-24, and Clayton-20, who keep me laughing and thinking !  Each year is different with new beginnings and challenges.   I believe that education is a lifelong journey that should be cherished!  I look forward to working with your child and making this a memorable and positive experience in 2nd grade.
