I grew up in Tucson, Arizona but spent part of my summer each year with my grandparents. Some of my fondest memories as a second grader were from the summers I spent in Pennsylvania and I can't wait to share some of my stories with them this year.
My husband and I moved to Texas in 1996 where we spent four years in Houston before moving to the Corinth area in 2000. We have three amazing children, Kyle (20), Tyler (18) and Emily (16). Both of my boys are currently going to college here in Denton. My youngest just got her car so we are adjusting to having five cars in our driveway. Time to move to the country! Ha Ha! We also have a dog named Charlie that we rescued and a cat named lucky.
This is my fourth year teaching 2nd grade and I absolutely LOVE it! This is such a fun age watching them grow academically and taking more ownership of their learning. I love watching them mature throughout the year.
I consider myself to be a life long learner. This summer, I went to New York for an amazing opportunity to learn alongside some of the best teachers at Columbia's writing institute. I am so excited to be able to teach your children all I have learned this summer.
I'm really looking forward to getting to know your families this year!
