    I am so excited to be a Silver Lake Shooting Star! This will be my 11th year in the Teaching field. I taught in Irving ISD for 5 years and  4 ½ years at a private Montessori school for pre-K and Kindergarteners. This will be my second year in GCISD and at Silver Lake Elementary and I am SO ecstatic to be here!
     
    I am passionate about teaching! I love to research new ways to be a more effective educator and new resources to use in the classroom. I love books and try to build a love for reading throughout the school year. 
     

    My husband, Michael, & I have 2 children that both attend Silver Lake. Matthew is 9 years old and in 4th grade and our daughter, Emma, is 6 years old and in First Grade. We have one dog, a blue heeler, named Bo and we live in Flower Mound.

    Michael and I just celebrated our 11 year anniversary. He is a Dallas Fireman & paramedic and graduated from ACU. I graduated from DBU with a Bachelors of Arts and Science in Psychology.

    We are an active family and love to be outdoors, especially in the swimming pool! I love to read & attempt at crafty Pinterest projects. :)

    I LOVE  Harry Potter, all things DISNEY, Dr. Pepper, and bright, fun colors!

    I am looking forward to this year & so excited to have your child in my class!
