Hi! I grew up in the Pineywoods of East Texas in a small town called Crockett. My childhood home is nestled in the tall pine trees right next to Davy Crockett National Forest! I moved to Plano as soon as I graduated high school. I attended an internship and was on staff as a Children's Ministry Director at a church here in Plano. I taught Kindergarten and 1st grade at Hightower Elementary in Plano ISD since 2011 and the 2019-2020 school year was my first year at Plano West Senior High! I'm married, a foster/adopt mom and a dog mom! We adopted our first baby boy in Spring of 2020 and we also have a 5 year old goldendoodle named Louie. My husband is from Argentina so we speak Spanish and English in our home. We are board members of a preschool in Nicaragua (Nicaragua Advances in Christian Education). I had the opportunity to spend the Summer of 2010 in Nicaragua when the preschool was in its beginning stages. We enjoy traveling internationally as often as possible. My favorite spots are the Grand Canyon and the top of any mountain-but more specifically the top of the Nordkette Mountain Range in Innsbruck, Austria.
