Though I wasn’t born in Texas, I got here as fast as I could and have called Missouri City home since 2004. I grew up near Detroit, Michigan and attended Michigan State University (go green!) where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. Teaching is a passion of mine and I have had a variety of roles teaching within Fort Bend ISD. I started as a fifth grade teacher but have since worked as a campus math specialist, a district math coach, a math lab outclass teacher, and have happily returned to teaching first graders. I hit the jackpot when I married my high school sweetheart, Jason, in Lake Tahoe on 7/7/07. I have three awesome kids - Logan is a 6th grader at Thorton Middle School, Gavin is a 3rd grade Lion, and Kate is a 1st grade Lion. We also have 9 goldfish and a rescue dog names Riley.
