This is my 21st year teaching, 17th year with NEISD, and 5th year as a proud bear. I am certified as a Reading Specialist , Master Reading Teacher, Professional School Counselor, and elementary teacher. I LOVE reading, writing, and history! I hope to spread that love to my students as well!
I am a single mom to 6 kids, 5 dogs, and 1 daughter-in-love. I have 2 grand cats, and 1 grand dog living in Ohio with my adult son and his wife! I have other grand fur babies that include a ferret, guinea pigs, a hamster, and a fancy mouse that belong to my 16-year-old daughter. Needless to say, we love animals! My adult son has been married for over 6 years, which led me to fostering 5 years ago. Since then, I have 3 much younger sons and 2 daughters via adoption. Fostering started with 4-legged babies over 12 years ago with Pause for Paws. A few of my foster dogs all had some sort of medical or behavioral issue which made them unadoptable, so I decided they would be part of my family forever! We are a proud NEISD family! My oldest son graduated from West Ave., KSAT/Krueger, and ETA/Roosevelt. My younger kids are part of Thousand Oaks, Bradley, DATA @ Ed White, and Churchill.
In what little spare time I do have, I love to paint pictures. I have over 60 paintings I did in my house!! I love to do projects around my house, go swimming with my kids, cook, and watch movies.
