About Me

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 25th year of marriage this December.  We live in Allen and have three daughters.  Ally (20) who is attending Midland University in Fremont, Nebraska on a Powerlifting scholarship and studying business.  Abby (17) is a Senior at LHS who is part of the Cross Country and Robotics team.  And Avry (16) is a Sophomore attending Booker T Washington Performing and Visual Arts School in Dallas. The 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 10th 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.
