Welcome! This year will be my 19th year of teaching! I have taught at Scanlan Oaks since we opened and I am proud to be a teacher at this school! I can honestly say that I truly enjoy coming to school every day! I have taught first, second, and third grades.
I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. My family is probably the largest group of Steelers fans in the South! I went to elementary, middle, and high school in the Cy-Fair area of Houston. After graduating from Stephen F. Austin State University, I moved back to Houston to begin my teaching career. I received my Reading Specialist Master's Degree and certification in August 2019.
Teaching is much more than a job to me. I hold high expectations for myself and my students. I enjoy watching my students grow academically and socially throughout the year. First grade will be a year full of responsibility, hard work, and fun!
I love teaching, but in my "free" time I love to exercise, read, cook and travel.
We are going to have an exciting year!!!
