Hello students, parents and Mendenhall friends.

 I am excited to be teaching 3rd grade at Mendenhall again this year. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Education degree from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. I taught in 4 years in Grand Prairie before coming to Plano.

I grew up in Wisconsin, but have now lived in Texas for over 30 years. My husband and I have 3 sons, Peter, Stephen and Andrew. All three have attended or are attending Texas A&M University. When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my family, reading and traveling.  

I am looking forward to building positive relationships with your students while encouraging them to reach their full academic and social/emotional potentials. I love teaching children, especially at Mendenhall!
