3rd Grade Teacher

Hello! This will be my 6th year teaching 3rd Grade! I will be teaching math and science this year, which is a change from teaching all subjects for the past 5 years. I have a passion for math and science and look forward to teaching this year. 
Prior to teaching, I spent 9 years in the United States Air Force as a Public Health Craftsman. While I was in the service, I had the opportunity to travel and meet many wonderful people and experience many different cultures. Once I had my own 2 children, I wanted to pursue my passion for teaching which led me to separate from the military with an Honorable Discharge at the rank of Staff Sergeant. I then moved to Texas, where I attended Texas A&M University-Commerce, and graduated with a BSIS in Interdisciplinary Studies.
I have 2 children who also attend Lovejoy ISD schools and we have a sweet natured Chocolate Lab named Freddie Mercury.
I enjoy working with children and building relationships with them and their families. I love being a part of the family at Hart Elementary where there is a strong community of friendship and caring. I look forward to a wonderful year getting to know you and your child.
