While my family has been a member of the Lovejoy family for 10 years, I am so excited to now be a part of the Lovejoy Elementary staff. I grew up in Illinois, but met my husband, Stuart, at Baylor University. Upon graduation with a Bachelor in Elem.Ed, we moved to the Dallas area. After teaching public education for 7 years in second and third grade, I was blessed with my three children, Samantha (19,) Catherine (17,) and Jackson (15.) After substitute teaching for the LovejoyISD for 9 years, I was hired to work full-time in the classroom. Teaching First Grade is a dream come true! I love coming to school each day to see all of their happy, excited faces. I enjoy spending time with my awesome family, cooking, canning, reading, and exercising. I look forward to teaching in the Lovejoy District for many years, imparting knowledge and a love of learning.
