Hello! I am excited to be at Barksdale this year! I graduated from Stephen F. Austin with a Bachelor's in Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. I am ESL certified, and I have previously taught first grade, as well as third grade Language Arts and Reading.  I live in McKinney with my wonderful husband, Ross and our three lovely daughters; Madison, Ashton and Carsyn.We have two dogs, Chase and Bandit. I love to garden, shop, decorate my home, be creative, read, watch movies and travel.
