Welcome to 2nd grade at Neill Elementary! Teaching your precious child is a great privilege. My goal is to nurture a love of learning for a lifetime in each student by creating a caring environment where students are encouraged to give their best effort and to learn through both mistakes and achievements.
After graduating from Louisiana State University, I moved to the Northwest where I started teaching in Oregon. I began substituting when we moved to Texas and taught in private schools here in the Sugar Land area for 7 years. I am excited to be beginning my second year teaching at Neill!
My husband, Kevin, and I met through Young Life and he continues working for Young Life International Developing Global Leaders helping students in underdeveloped countries receive a college education. We are big believers in education! We married in 2000 and have 3 fantastic children, 2 in high school and 1 in middle school. I am their biggest fan and enjoy cheering them on in their multiple sports and activities.
I am looking forward to a great year getting to know you and your child and making memories that I hope will last a lifetime!
