Welcome to 4th grade! I am thrilled to be here with you. I have been and EISD parent for many years, and now I am an EISD teacher. This is my second year to be part of the wonderful BCE community.
I grew up in Fairfax, VA which is a suburb of Washington DC, went to The College of Wooster in Ohio and then attended graduate school for social work in Missouri. After working as a social worker specializing in children and youth, I returned to graduate school to study business and entered the field of sales and marketing of industrial chemicals used in the oil and gas fields and moved to Houston. Eventually, I moved to Austin and returned to my childhood dream of being an elementary school teacher just like my mom and my grandmother. I am still friends with my 2nd and 6th grade teachers!
I live 5 minutes from school with and have a daughter who is a 7th grader at West Ridge. I am a step mom to Matthew, who teaches music in New Orleans, and Mack a student at Texas Tech. I also have a rescue dog, Max.
I enjoy reading, gardening, exercising, practicing yoga and spending time with my family. I am looking forward to spending this year with 4th grade students and families.
