       I am so very excited to be teaching at Timberline Elementary for a fifth year! I graduated from Texas Tech University with a Bachelor of Science in Family Studies. Hit 'em, wreck 'em, Texas TechI taught ballet, tap, and jazz dance classes all through high school and college and loved working with the students. But after college, I worked in a cubicle (boring!) handling insurance claims and benefits for several years before finally making my way back to what I love to do. This year, I'll be teaching Math and Science (they ARE first cousins, you know). Science is absolutely my FAVORITE subject so I am hopeful my students will see how interesting (and fun!) Science can be to explore and wonder about. After all, Science is everywhere! I have also taught in Alvarado ISD and Coppell ISD. I can't wait to meet all of our 5th graders! I know it will be a FANTASTIC year!
