Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I am thrilled to be embarking on my 12th year of teaching at Tuscany Heights Elementary! After graduating with my Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction, I helped to open this school and spent 5 years here teaching first grade. I am excited to now be in my seventh year of teaching the G/T program at Tuscany Heights. I look forward to each day bringing a new challenge, adventure, and opportunity to dive deeper into our learning about both the world and ourselves.
My amazing husband and I have been together for 29 years, and we have two incredible children. My son WOULD be a Junior in the Film Program at UT Austin - Hook 'Em Horns! He has put that on hold for this year however, as he was accepted for the Disney College Internship Program in Orlando this fall, and we could not be MORE excited about this opportunity! My daughter will be a Freshman in the Honors College at LSU and is very involved in both theatre and choir - Geaux Tigers! We are excited to visit them as often as possible during this new year of being "empty nesters". When all is well with the world, most of our "free" time is spent enjoying live theatre, movies, concerts, traveling, cooking, and spending time with our family. This past year of "home-living" has blessed us with 2 adorable puppies - Ryder and Harley - and they have been an exhausting and wonderful addition to the family!
Some of my favorite things are: shopping on Amazon, doing puzzles, home decorating, playing games, watching college football, creating arts and crafts, going to the theatre and of course one of my biggest passions is ALL THINGS DISNEY!
I have THE BEST job, and consider myself lucky to be able to learn, grow, and be inspired by my students daily. Our classroom is known for being active, challenging, engaged, and full of laughter! It is an honor to play a small role in building up the confidence and competence of our future leaders, and empowering them with the life skills to make a difference in our world.
