Hello!  I am excited to join the Royal Ridge Elementary team as a 2nd grade teacher.  I have 8 years of experience as an elementary teacher in which I took 12 years off to be a mommy!!! I was blessed with two AMAZING boys who attend NEISD.  During that time, I spent the last 5 years as a substitute teacher for NEISD, a room mom for my boys teachers and have been a PTA member.   My boys are my everything including our sweet dog Buster, named after the dog in Toy Story.  

It has been a very exciting week getting ready for school and preparing a nice and comfortable place for your precious children to enjoy their education here at Royal Ridge.  I am so excited for this upcoming year.  Please know that I will care for your child as if they were my own and will strive to prepare them for 3rd grade.
