I am so excited to join the 4th grade team at Neill Elementary this year! I will be teaching 4th math and science. I have been teaching for 12 years, 6 of those in Alief and I've spent the past 6 years at Sugar Mill Elementary in FBISD. I have taught Kindergarten, 1st grade, Physical Education, and 3rd grade, before teaching 4th grade. This will be my 3rd year teaching 4th grade math, and I have a true passion to help differentiate math skills 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. So, this Aggie is anxious to see how it feels to be a Longhorn! 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 (10) and Parker (9), who attend school in Lamar Consolidated ISD. My husband and I were married for 10 years when he sadly lost a hard-fought battle with cancer in July of 2017. 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!
