Hello Longhorns! 

I love being on the Neill Second Grade Team.  I grew up and completed my degree in Elementary Education in  West Texas at Odessa College and The University of Texas Permian Basin. The Houston area has been my home for over 20 years now, since my husband, Garren, who is an awesome chef, was transferred here in 1999.  

When I’m not teaching, you can find me on the golf course.  We are members of Pecan Grove Plantation Golf Course and live on Grove # 7.  We love traveling to beautiful golf destinations for vacations and weekend get-aways. We also love sports and watching our Houston Astros and Houston Texans.

I’m blessed with two amazing sons, two fabulous daughters-in-law, and two wonderful grandsons.  We have two Mini-Australian Shepherd Puppies named Birdie and Bogey and a cat, Rowdy.

I enjoy reading, photography, and spending as much time as possible with family, friends, & neighbors.

I'm so excited to be a Longhorn because teaching has always been my passion.  I love Reading all types of Literature and Genres.  Math and the world of numbers, patterns, relationships, and geometry is always exciting to me.  I also absolutely love Science and exploring through hands-on experiments.  Second Grade has wonderful Social Studies units! 

I can’t wait to meet everyone.   I’m looking forward to an amazing year.  Go Longhorns!
