When I was in the first grade I decided that I wanted to be a teacher. After graduating from UTA with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, I got my first job as a sixth-grade teacher in Duncanville ISD. Then, my husband and I moved to Bryan/College Station, where I taught second grade while he finished his degree at Texas A&M. WHOOP! As soon as he graduated, we both received teaching assignments in the greatest school district on earth, Grapevine Colleyville Independent School District. I taught first grade at OC Taylor Elementary until I decided to take a few years off to be at home with our children. In 2012 I returned to GCISD teaching first grade at Dove. Last year was my first year as a GT specialist at Glenhope.
Meeting the unique needs of gifted and talented students is one of my passions. I believe it is my duty as an educator to advocate for the needs of gifted students. GCISD provides unparalleled gifted services in order to help gifted learners achieve their potential. I am proud to be part of the GCISD Advanced Academics team at Glenhope Elementary School. Go Gators!
My husband and I have been married for 21 years. He is a fantastic science teacher at GMS. We have been blessed with 3 awesome kids. Our oldest daughter will be in eleventh grade at Collegiate Academy this year. Go Phoenix! Our son will be in eighth grade at GMS, and our youngest daughter will be in fifth grade at GHES. We have 1 dog, a spoiled Boston Terrier, and have recently acquired a guinea pig. In our free time, we like to travel, jog, paddle board, and read lots of books. We are proud to be a part of this special community.
