I am so excited to start the 2017-2018 school year teaching at UP Elementary School! This will be my 10th year of teaching and third year back in HPISD. I have taught PPCD and middle school Life Skills in Lovejoy ISD. I then moved onto to teach in the private school sector at Vanguard Preparatory, as well as, Cornerstone Achievement Center. My experiences in both private school and public school have given me new perspectives in the education world and have brought me to a great point in my teaching career!
I grew up in Dallas, Texas and am a proud Fighting Scot! I am the oldest of four children. I am also proud mom of my son, Luke who is 3 years old. I graduated from Baylor University with a Bachelor’s degree in All-Level Special Education. This past spring I started my Master's Degree at West Texas A&M. I am studying to get my Master's in Curriculum and Education with an emphasis in Special Education.
In my free time, I enjoy playing with my son and spending time with family and friends. I enjoy traveling and doing activities outdoors. I am truly looking forward to being back at UP this year!
