I am very excited to once again be a part of the Kindergarten team at Lovejoy Elementary! Like all of the ones before, I look for this year to be equally full of challenges, surprises, laughter, and love. I am a lifelong learner and am always seeking the most engaging way to reach children. My passion is developing warm, positive relationships with my students and their parents and creating a positive, challenging, respectful learning environment.
This is my 23rd year "officially" in Education, but I come from a long line of educators. Previously, I taught first grade in my hometown school for 12 1/2 years. I even taught in the very same classroom in which I attended second grade as a child. Teaching the children of many of my previous classmates was quite an experience! If those walls could talk...
In November of 2007 my family and I made the move to Lovejoy ISD and I got "promoted" to Kindergarten. I absolutely love what I do! I consider it a privilege to be a part of planting the seeds of the love for learning every day in each of my students.
I am married to a wonderful man named Tim. Together we have six boys; Brock has graduated from high school, Layton is a Lovejoy graduate, Ashton is an 9th grader, Landon is an 9th grader, Timmy is a 3rd grader, and our little one, Toby is 4 years old and goes to pre-school at Little Leopards. We are very busy, but we have a ton of fun!
