Thank you so much for visiting our class website!  I am thrilled to be your child's teacher!  I can't wait to join you, and your child, as we work together towards a successful year in first grade!  I can't wait to get to know you and your child, but first, I'll tell you a little about myself.
 
I am a graduate of the University of Houston-Clear Lake.  This will be my 11th year in education.  I am GT and ESL certified.  I started my teaching journey in Deer Park ISD, where I taught 2 years, before I made Tomball my new home.  I then taught 7 years at Decker Prairie Elementary School.  After taking a short leave, after my second child was born, I then returned to Tomball ISD, as a Wildwood Wildcat!
 
I have a wonderful husband, whom I have been married to for 13 years.  We have 2 beautiful children.  My son will be a 2nd grader at Wildwood and my sweet little girl is 4.  We live in the Tomball area and are so proud to be a part of this wonderful community!  Thank you for letting me be a part of your child's educational journey!
