This is my first year at Sartartia Middle School and my 8th year as a teacher. I have been a Texas certified Teacher for 23 years. I have a Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree in Special Education with an emphasis in Applied Behavior Analysis from Texas A&M University, Bryan College Station. I have taught elementary, middle, and high school. I was a stay at home mom for 15 years and returned to my passion as an educator. This year I am teaching Reading and English for sixth, seventh and eighth grade. I am married to my husband for 20 years; we have a 16-year-old son who excels in baseball and academics, and a 4 year old golden retriever. When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading, traveling, watching documentaries, fine arts, music, and spending time with close friends and family.
