This is my 8th year of teaching! I began teaching at Finley-Oates Elementary in 2015 and entering my fifth year with the district. I currently teach all subjects including math, reading, writing, science, and social studies.
I began my teaching career in the fall of 2012, where I had taught 1st,3rd,and 4th grade in Palestine, TX.
My husband and I have been married for 12 years now and live in Denison. We have a 6 year old daughter entering first grade this year!
There’s nothing like sitting down with a good book! I love reading books, especially reading mysteries. Reading is so important and I encourage my students to love reading as much as I do. When I am not teaching, I love to spend time with my family, travel, and read!
