Welcome to 8th grade social studies! Here is a little about the journey that brought me to Lucas, Texas and Lovejoy ISD.
I am originally from Memphis, Tennessee. My family relocated to Texas with my father's company in 1988. I attended Plano schools from 4th grade until I graduated high school in 1996. (I attended Davis Elementary, Haggard Middle School, Vines High School, and Plano Senior High School) I went to Texas Tech in Lubbock from 1996-2000 where I majored in history and minored in education. I began my teaching career in 2000 in Plano ISD at Frankford Middle School. I taught there from 2000-2006. My family moved to Lucas in 2006, and that is when I made the switch to Lovejoy ISD to help start the secondary program. I have been in Lovejoy for 10 years. (2006-2016) I have taught U.S. history for 16 years. I have twin daughters, Tatum and Peyton, and a son, Cade. The twins are 8, and will be in third grade at Lovejoy Elementary this year. Cade is 13 and is in 8th grade at Willow Springs this year. I have been married to my high school sweet heart for the past 16 years. We met the summer before my senior year of high school when I was only 17 years old! He is truly my best friend! I really enjoy living in Lucas, Texas and teaching in the Lovejoy community!!!
