Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I am thrilled to be embarking on my 11th 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 sixth 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 28 years, and we have two incredible children. My son is a Sophomore in the Film Program at UT Austin - Hook 'Em Horns! My daughter will be a Senior at Johnson High and is very involved in both theatre and choir - Go Jags! They keep us VERY busy, but we wouldn't have it any other way! When all is well wit the world, most of our "free" time is spent enjoying live theatre, movies, concerts, traveling, cooking, and spending time with our family. These past months of "home-living" have 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, arts and crafts, going to the theatre and of course my newest passion - the Texas Longhorns!
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.
