I was named O.C. Taylor's Teacher of the Year for the 2013-2014 school year. This was a true honor and will always be a highlight for me!Helping students grow academically and socially is one of the greatest rewards of my career. I believe one of the greatest discoveries a child can make is believing in themselves. It is a privilege to help a child make deep, meaningful connections that last far beyond third grade."The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery." ~Mark Van DorenAbout MeI graduated from the University of North Texas with a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies. My husband, Kyle, and I met at UNT and have been married for 18 years. We have two wonderful boys. Cade is in tenth grade at Colleyville Heritage High School, and Campbell is a seventh grader at Colleyville Middle School.Our newest family members are Duke and Tucker. They are sweet puppies that keep us very busy! Kyle and I spend much of our free time getting the boys to various sports activities, visiting with friends, and traveling. During my down time I love to read, shop, scrapbook/craft, and catch an episode or two of anything I have on my DVR.
