Welcome back, Rangers!
I'm excited about being your English I or II AAC teacher this year! I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. I moved to Texas 14 years ago, and this will be my 15th year teaching, and my 10th at CHS. I started out teaching at Aldine ISD, where I taught English I for 4 years. After Aldine, I taught a year of 8th grade English in Pearland, and finally landed here at CHS. I love it here!
In addition to teaching, I am also a professional writer! As a freelancer, I write blog articles, email marketing texts, website copy, and so much more for an educational app company that I've been working with for the past 7 years. I truly hope that my experience with professional writing will help to give you real world context for improving your own writing skills!
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, watching way too much TV, and spending my time with my family. I have 11-year-old twin girls and an 8-year-old son. My girls are in 6th grade and attending First Colony Middle School, and my son is in 3rd grade at Colony Bend Elementary School. The girls are beginning orchestra this year, and I am SUPER excited because I was a violinist myself. All three of my kids are future Rangers!
I also have three lovable furbabies. My oldest, Hilo, is a 13-year-old Australian cattle dog/retriever/shepherd mix whose littermate and best friend passed away last year from cancer. I also have a 1-year-old Australian cattle dog/pittie/husky mix, Ruby, who thinks she's the queen of the house! Our newest addition is the sweetest 6-month-old golden retriever boy who just loves his older "siblings".
I am looking forward to having yet another awesome year here at CHS, and I hope you are too!
