It is an honor to be teaching at Sienna Crossing Elementary School! This is my thirteenth year as an educator at Sienna Crossing Elementary. For eight years, I taught first grade and for two years, I taught third grade. This is my third year to teach fourth grade. I was born in San Antonio, Texas and then moved to Austin, Texas when I was eleven years old. I graduated from The University of Texas in 1987 with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing. After college, I was employed by United Healthcare as a Senior Account Manager and I worked there for ten years. I took some education classes in college and pursued my dream of becoming an educator. In 2006, I obtained my Educator’s Certification. My husband, Bill is a Sales Manager for Acme Brick. We have three sons named Joshua, Jacob and John. In my spare time, I enjoy gardening, cooking, browsing in antique stores and watching my sons play golf.
