I am a Texas A&M graduate. I have been an elementary school teacher for nineteen years. My student teaching and first two years in the classroom were with Northeast ISD in San Antonio. After moving to the Sugar Land area I taught fourth and fifth grade Math and Science at Meadows Elementary for six years. After having my third child I decided to stay home for a while. I returned to the classroom in 2008, and have been here at Oakland ever since.
In my free time outside of the classroom I enjoy spending time with my family. I have a daughter, Emily, who is a sophomore at Travis. My oldest son Walker is in the eighth grade at Bowie. My youngest, Braden, is in seventh grade at Bowie. I can be seen taking pictures or grading papers at all of their sporting events.
I really love when my students get that “sparkle” in their eye because they have learned something new. In science we like to talk about how making the wrong prediction is actually great! It means we have learned something new! I strive daily to create lifelong scientists who always ask the “why, what and how” questions.
