I am tremendously excited to be starting my 10th year in public education. I am joining the Lovejoy family from Richardson ISD in neighboring Richardson TX. During my first 9 years I have taught both elementary and secondary level mathematics as a 4th grade math teacher and a Pre-AP Algebra 2 and ESL geometry teacher. Before beginning my career as an educator in the Dallas area I was a SCUBA instructor in the British Virgin Islands. For 5 years I certified teenagers at all levels from open water divers to rescue divers. I earned my undergraduate degree from Abilene Christian University in Abilene TX and I earned my Masters degree in Administration Education from Lamar University in Beaumont TX. I look forward to partnering with you to make this year outstanding.
