Welcome to Hart Elementary's first grade! I am beyond excited to continue my passion for teaching in the amazing district of Lovejoy. My teaching career started at the turn of the century and my experience spans many elementary positions in K-5, most of which were in first grade. I'm a native Texan, born and raised in the Dallas metroplex. I earned my Bachelor's of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies with a minor in English and an endorsement in English as a Second Language at Texas A&M, Commerce. I extended my learning by attending the University of North Texas and earning a Master's of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a minor in Linguistics. Is there a doctorate in my future? Certainly! However, I think I'll wait until I'm an empty nester. Right now life is full.
Our family of five lives in Allen where my husband was raised. We have three children, two boys and a daughter. Adding to our circus are two very sweet rescue dogs. Outside of church and sports, our family loves to spend time together at the dog park or any local yogurt sweet spot. Be sure to say hello if you see us out and about!
As a mother, I know what a gift it is to have time with YOUR child. As a teacher, I know what a gift it is to be at Hart Elementary. I can't wait to partner with you in my commitment to provide opportunities for your child to reach their full potential!
