Welcome to third grade! The 2016-2017 school year will be my tenth year of teaching and my fourth year at UP. Prior to coming to UP, I taught fourth and fifth grade in Plano ISD.
I grew up in University Park and attended HPISD schools through high school. In 2007, I earned my bachelor’s degree in elementary education from the University of Mississippi and returned to Dallas to begin teaching. In 2014, I earned my master’s degree in teaching mathematics, my favorite subject, from the University of Texas at Arlington. My husband and I are kept busy by our one-year-old daughter and our six-year-old basset-chihuahua mix, Elliot.
I feel very privileged to be a teacher because nothing is more rewarding than helping my students develop a deep passion and enthusiasm for learning, problem solving, and thinking critically through hard work, perseverance, fun, and encouragement. I feel so fortunate to be teaching in this excellent district and to be a UP Panther!
I look forward to partnering with you to ensure that third grade is a year full of excitement, growth, and discovery. I can’t wait to get started!
