I am so excited to be back on campus at Neill Elementary this year! I am excited to use my background in kinesiology to educate my students in health and physical education! I have been teaching for 14 years, 6 of those in Alief and I've spent the past 8 years in FBISD. I have taught kindergarten, 1st grade, physical education, 3rd grade, and 4th grade. I have a true passion to help differentiate skills and abilities amongst a diverse group of learners. I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and a Minor in Business. After graduating, I worked in sales for the Houston Rockets. I received my teaching certification in 2003 and started my teaching career in Alief. I have two sons, Miller (12) and Parker (11), who attend school in Lamar Consolidated ISD. I am originally from Lake Charles, Louisiana, but I call myself a Texan since I have lived here for over 20 years.
A fun fact about me is that I threw the javelin for Texas A&M's track and field team!
