Teaching has always been my passion.

 After staying home with my own children for 10 years, I began teaching First Grade at Lovejoy Elementary in 2004.  I love to see the wonder children experience when exploring their world!  My dual degree is in Elementary Education and Guidance Studies.  I also completed Introductory International Baccalaureate certification and GT Certification.

In 2012, I began teaching Primary GT at Puster and Lovejoy.  This year I teach K-2 GT at Puster Elementary and 1st Grade GT and Kindergarten at Lovejoy. Both my children were in the GT program at Lovejoy beginning in elementary.  My son, Jake, graduated from Texas A & M University and is working as an engineer for a company in Denver  and my daughter recently graduated from the University of Missouri (Mizzou) studying journalism and is living and working in Brussels, Belgium.

My husband, Lou, is a recruiter and teaches tennis.  We have been married 27 years.  I grew up in Tyler, TX and am the youngest of six kids. In my spare time I love traveling!  I've been to Europe several times and have visited South America and Africa as well.  I also enjoy biking, hiking and reading but I treasure spending time with my family most of all.
