Hello 5th Grade!! I am starting my 3rd year in 5th grade here at TPES, my 6th year in Comal ISD, and my 22nd year of teaching! I will be teaching English Language Arts in a 3 way rotation with Mrs. Shenk (Science/SS), and Mrs. Beltran (Math). 

    I graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 1995 with a Major in Kinesiology. After 3 years of coaching, my husband and I moved to Katy. While in Katy, I worked at West Memorial Elementary School teaching 3rd and 5th grade. After 14 years, we moved back to the Hill Country where all our family is located. For three years, I worked at Smithson Valley High school with the Special Education department.

    I grew up in New Braunfels and graduated from Canyon High School. I met my husband in Kerrville while working for the Kerrville School District. My husband and I will be married 22 years this December. We are blessed with two wonderful children. Our son, Tyler is a SVHS 2016 graduate and our daughter, Braidi is a SVHS 2018 graduate. Braidi will be starting her Freshman year of college at Midwestern State University. My hearts swells with love and admiration for my children! They are my internal inspiration!

 I am looking forward to a very exciting year of lots of learning, laughs, and love. Thank you in advance for sharing your children with me!
