Hello! This is my 12th year working for Lovejoy schools and my 21st year in education...wow! I am blessed to teach Primary Gifted & Talented at both Hart and Lovejoy Elementary. I teach Primary GT for grades K-2. My previous experience was in Phoenix, AZ, Washington, DC, Northern Virginia, and Albuquerque, NM. I loved living and teaching in these different places. My undergraduate degree is from New Mexico State University with a business degree majoring in Marketing and Economics. After working in that field for a few years, I decided to pursue something I've always had a passion for...teaching! I graduated from The George Washington University with a Masters degree in Elementary Education. Soon thereafter, I attended the University of Virginia for my certification in Gifted Education. I love what I do and appreciate the opportunity I've been given to work with many children in different grade levels.
On a personal note, my husband's name is Raymond. We have three amazing kids, Trey~~who is a new graduate of UT Austin and an LHS alum, Bella~~also an LHS alum who attends UT-Austin as a sophomore (GO LONGHORNS!), and Juliet~~avid volleyball player, art enthusiast and 9th grader at Lovejoy High School. We love living in lovely Lucas!
