Hello families! I am originally from Longview, Texas, but came to Denton to attend the University of North Texas. I began at UNT as a music education major, but soon discovered that my heart's desire was to teach elementary school. This is my eighteenth year to teach (all in the Denton ISD). My first four years were at Tomas Rivera Elementary. I moved with my principal to Providence Elementary, where I taught for four years. I, then, moved to help open Blanton Elementary and taught there for the next six years. It is such a blessing to be teaching here at Adkins. I´m looking forward to another great year!
My husband, Richard, and I have been married for eighteen years and we have three beautiful daughters . Hannah is a Sophomore at Lewisville High School-Killough, Reagan is a seventh grader at Huffines Middle School in Lewisville where she attends with her Dad (the band director), and Reese is a 1st grader here at Adkins this year. Our family is very active at First Baptist Church in Denton.
