Paris has been my home for over 34 years. I graduated from Texas A&M -Commerce with a Bachlor's of Arts in Elementary Education and have a Masters of Science with an emphasis in Earth Science. I have attended more than 300 hours of training in Gifted and Talented education and received a Texas Association of Gifted and Talented Awareness Certificate. My family consists of my husband, two daughters, one son, two granddaughters and four grandsons. Clogging, biking, swimming and making crafts are a few of my hobbies. I love the excitement and challenge of teaching! Community service is important to me and my students love helping make our town a better place to live too. My greatest accomplishment is to see my students become passionate about learning and accomplish their dreams.
