I grew up in the DFW area with my parents and two younger brother, before moving to west Texas. There, I graduated with my BA in Early Childhood Education from Texas Tech University. (WRECK 'EM TECH!) This is my seventh year teaching. I have taught one year in 5th grade and have spent the last six years teaching 1st. Students grow so much in this time and I love helping them reach each new milestone, from tying shoes to reading on the next level.
September 2015 I got married to a wonderful man. We have 2 year old twin boys. I also have an 12 year old step son. We have two cats named Twinkie and Little Cat, as well as a golden retriever named Chuck. In my spare time I love to watch movies, and go camping. I am a huge animal lover and love finding experiences that allow me to interact with them.
