Hello! I am so honored and excited to be part of the Dorothy P. Adkins Elementary community! I look forward to putting our mission statement into action!Learn. Connect. Serve.This is my 21st year in education. I have been in Denton ISD since 2001, beginning at Newton Rayzor for 2 years, Pecan Creek for 12 years and now Adkins. I also serve as the dyslexia therapist at Harpool Middle School, and see students there each morning.I have been married to my husband Christian since 2002. We have 2 children and 1 spoiled cat. ;) Our son, Noah, is 13, and goes to Harpool Middle School. Our daughter, Maggie, is 6, and is a very proud Aviator. Our fur baby, Molly, is a kitten and is happy to play all night and sleep all day.When I am not teaching I love to spend time with my family, swim, read and watch the Boston Red Sox! I was born in Boston. We moved back to my parents' hometown, Syracuse, New York, for several years, and then our final move was to Richmond, Texas, where my parents still live. I have loved living in both parts of the country, but let's face it; the people in Texas are the friendliest people in the world...particularly Aggies! I went to Texas A & M, but got my teaching credentials from UNT. My husband and I loved Denton so much, we decided to stay!
