Welcome to Ronald Thornton Middle School and your 6th grade experience! Although this year will look really different from what we are used to, I'm very excited to get the 2020-2021 school year up and running. I've been a proud Thundercat for the past 2 years since the opening of Thornton. Prior to that I taught second and third grade at Scanlan Oaks Elementary. In addition to teaching I'm an avid reader and look forward to sharing my love of reading with all of my students. While I know that they don't all love to read, it's my philosophy that every one is a reader, some have just not yet discovered the books that speak to them!
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy reading, photography, cooking, baking, and mostly just spending time with my family which includes my husband, 4 children and 2 four-legged friends. My oldest 3 all graduated from Ridge Point High School, and are now busy college students, with my oldest a graduate of Texas Tech and working. My youngest son Jack, is looking forward to his junior year at RP! The middle school years can be challenging, but they go quickly and I hope to be a part of making it a positive experience for all my students.
