Hello Schim Panthers! I am very excited to be starting my sixth year teaching 6th-grade science here at Schimelpfenig Middle School. 

I grew up nearby in McKinney before attending Texas A&M University and majoring in Animal Science. (Gig'em!!) While at A&M, I was a teaching assistant and also had the privilege of traveling during the summer teaching children in the 4H clubs around Texas. After graduation, I worked in the equine industry for a few years, but ultimately decided I missed teaching and working with children. So, I made the change to teaching and I haven't looked back!

While not teaching our future scientists, I am spending time with my husband, Alex, and two-year-old son, Spencer. You can often find us cheering on the Aggies and Rangers!

This year is going to be a great year for our students. I cannot wait to see what wonderful things they accomplish.
