I graduated from Poteet High School in 1998 in Mesquite, TX. I earned my Bachelors degree in Education from Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, OK in 2003. I continued my education and in 2012, earned my Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Texas A&M Commerce. Each summer I continue to learn the newest and best writing techniques and reading strategies as I want to continue growing as an educator.

I joined Harts Bluff in 2015 and absolutely LOVE being a Bulldog! If I could choose any teaching job, 7th grade English would be it. My favorite things to teach are poetry, dramas, and class novels.
I began my first teaching job in 2003 at Galloway Elementary, teaching 6th grade English/Reading in Mesquite, Texas. I taught 7th English for Garland ISD at Lyles Middle School for 2 years before my family and I moved from the Dallas area summer of 2015.
In 2002, I married my best friend, Brad, and we have 2 fantastic children, twins, Molly and Paisley, who are in eighth grade here at Harts Bluff.
I love people...entertaining by cooking or going out with friends are a few of my favorite things. I also love just being with my family and enjoying outdoor activities...or even just sitting on my porch. I LOVE to dance...am incredibly bad at it, but do it anyway!
