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 University 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 12 years. (2006-2018) I have taught U.S. history for 18 years. I have twin daughters, Tatum and Peyton, and a son, Cade. The twins are 10, and will be in the fifth grade at Sloan Creek this year. Cade is 15 and is in the tenth grade at Lovejoy High School this year. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for the past 18 years. We met the summer before my senior year of high school when I was only 17 years old! I really enjoy living in Lucas, Texas and teaching in the Lovejoy community!!!
