Family details - I was born in Dallas, TX. I have two older brothers and one younger. I had a very unique childhood because my dad was in the Marine Corp for 13 years. We moved about every three years. Which was hard and exciting at the same time. I believe that it has made me who I am today, flexible and open to new challenges. I met and married my husband in 1996. He is an amazing man who puts up with me so he is a keeper! We will celebrate our 22nd year of marriage this December. We live in Allen and have three kids. All three are daughters who are in the district. Ally who is a Senior, Abby who is in Freshman, and Avry who is in 7th grade. They girls keep us busier than we like sometimes, but we wouldn't have it any other way.
Education details - I tried to count the number of school I attended as a child and simply could not. I even went to three different high schools in two different states! I graduated high school from Morgantown High in Morgantown, WV. I received a scholarship to play volleyball for Fairmont State in West Virginia, but quit the team before the season even began. I graduated from UNT after attending many different colleges. I completed a Bachelor in Arts in Sociology with a Minor in History in August 2010 on my oldest daughter's 10th birthday. I received my teaching certificate from Collin College in 2011. I did my student teaching here in Lovejoy ISD at Sloan Creek back when it was a 6th-8th grade campus in the incredible Kelly Bellar's class. I absolutely fell in love with this district and was lucky enough to receive a job teaching what I love Social Studies right after I finished my teaching certificate. This is my 7th year of teaching and I have taught 6th, 7th and 8th grade Social Studies. I love teaching I cannot imagine doing anything else in this world. I love to learn ways to make myself a better teacher and enhance the learning experience for my students.
