Welcome to first grade!
I am so excited to begin this year at Scanlan Oaks! I see each one as a chance to change the lives of a new group of eager learners. First grade is my favorite grade and it has been part of my life for eighteen years! I have a Bachelor of Science in communication from the University of Texas - Austin. After our second baby was born, I made the change into the world of teaching and went back to school to get my certification in 2000. I live here in Sienna with my awesome husband of 25 years and our two daughters. Shelby is 22 and recently graduated from Texas A&M at College Station and Caroline is 19 years old and is attending University of Texas at Austin for her sophmore year. I spend most of my free time reading, running and spending time with my family. I feel lucky to be a part of such a wonderful team and staff. Teaching is the best job- where else can I get recess and 20 hugs a day? We are looking forward to another great “express” year!
