In 1998 I graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. I later received a Master's degree in Teacher Leadership from Lamar University. All of my teaching years, except for one, have been at Dooley Elementary.
I believe that building a relationship with my students is the first step in creating a successful learning environment. Former students will tell you that I love to incorporate relevant life stories to provide real-world examples of the objectives that we are learning at school.
My family is amazing! I am married to my husband Bill, who is a 1983 graduate of Plano East High school. Our two children, Ryan & Brandon are former Dooley Dragons. Though they are grown, they continue to be a source of joy in my life.
