I graduated from Tom Bean High School in 1995. From there, I attended Grayson County College for two years. I transferred to Southeastern Oklahoma State University to work on my education degree.
I am a firm believer that in order to grow, we must continue to learn. I have attended many professional development workshops to help me become a better teacher. One of the most influential would be ABYDOS Writing. This has helped me become more comfortable with being a writing teacher. The more you learn, the more you will succeed!
I became a Wildcat because after attending football games during the 2017-2018 year, I witnessed the community and family feeling of Paris ISD. Becoming a Wildcat has been a dream for a couple of years. This will be my first year at Crockett Intermediate teaching 5th grade reading and writing. I am looking forward to this school year!
I began my teaching career in 1999, at Bells Elementary. While there, I taught 3rd grade, Special Education, and 5th grade. I then moved to Honey Grove, where I have taught 4th grade reading and writing for the past five years.
Althugh I am not married, I do have a daughter who is 12 years old. She loves to play basketball and plays the flute. She will be a 7th grader at Honey Grove Middle School. We have three dogs: Ruby, Lollipop, and Leonard.
