This will be my 8th year at Harts Bluff.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development and a concentration in Child Development.
I received my teaching certification from LeTourneau University and am certified EC-4, Special Education EC-12 and English as a Second Language EC-12.
This summer, I was 1 of 198 teachers across Texas choosen among 5,500 applicants to participae in TEA’a Techer Institute. This was a week long institute in Austin where I was able to help give input on some new idea that TEA will be offerring to schools soon. I have also been in many other professional trainings to keep up-to-date on the latest topics and trends in math, reading, science, ESL, GT & Dyslexia.
This will be my eighth year to teach here at Harts Bluff.
I will be teaching 2nd grade again and I am so excited!
Prior to teaching at Harts Bluff, I taught in California as well as other districts within Titus County.
I love teaching and am excited for the new year!
I have two children who keep me quite busy!
Felicity, will be a Sophmore at Texas A&M at College Station wher she is a studying Forensic Science.
Clayton, will be in 10th grade, at MPHS. Clayton loves playing sports & being outdoors. He fishes, plays football, track and power-lifts for the highschool.
We are a busy family! We love spending time together at home watching movies, doing puzzles or playing board games. When we have extra time we enjoy going to watch sporting events from local to professional. Most of all, we love to travel & explore our beautiful country. We usually drive so we can stop & explore things as we go.
I am originally from California and moved to Texas 21 years ago. Mt. Pleasant has many friendly people and is close to small towns with a lot of unique boutiques to explore (I like shopping!)
When I'm not teaching, I am usually watching my children in their activities, or taking a road trip. I enjoy finding new and fun places to explore and eat. I love baseball & enjoy watching the Texas Rangers and California Angels, as well as the Boston Red Sox.
The beach is my favorite place and I enjoy the beauty of mountains. California has both and I'm fortunate to visit them when I visit my brother, who still lives in California. I also visit the east coast beaches since I have friends there & the north, where my sister lives.
This Summer, we will traveled to Hawaii; South Texas, Memphis (TN), Minnesota, Chicago (IL), Nevada, and Arizona.
