    Hello Second Gators!  We are going to have a wonderful year learning together.  For some of you, this will be your third year at Glenhope and for others, this may be your first.  I will be starting my 17th year at Glenhope and am as excited as if it were my first.

    I was raised in Abilene, Texas where my parents still live in the house I grew up in.  I graduated from Abilene High School and attended Abilene Christian University.  I got a little distracted (my husband Bob enters the picture here), left school and married Bob in 1985 and relocated to the DFW area.  We have two beautiful, grown up babies.  Brittany is 29 and lives in Ventura, CA and our son Ben is 27 and lives in Denton.  I graduated from Texas Woman’s University in 2000 and began teaching at Glenhope the next year.

    I love teaching but when not teaching you can find me playing golf, working in my yard/garden, camping or traveling with my family.  We are always looking for a new adventure. I know that we will have lots of learning experiences and adventures of our own in second grade this year.  I can’t wait to get started.
