It's hard to believe that this will be my 13th year as an educator. My career has taken me to amazing districts and schools, and all of those experiences have made me the teacher I am today. I taught third grade at Lone Star Elementary in Keller ISD for five years. I also taught at Windsor Elementary in Amarillo ISD for two years as a looping teacher for second and third grade. Now, I've been at U.P. the past 5 years teaching third grade, and I absolutely love it! Go Panthers!
I grew up in Corpus Christi, TX, and I am the youngest of seven children. I attended Southern Nazarene University and earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I completed my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Literacy Studies from the University of Texas at Arlington last October.
In my free time, I enjoy reading, being outdoors, traveling, visiting with family and friends, attending church, and drinking a good cup of coffee.
I hope you are ready for a great year in 3rd grade!
