About Me:
I currently teach first grade at Lorena Primary. I graduated with honors from Texas A&M in 2002. I have been teaching for 13 years and love everything about it. This is my ninth year at Lorena Primary and I love it here.  I attended Lorena schools from kindergarten and graduated in 1990.   My parents and aunts attended Lorena schools, as well.  I have two sons. Tyler, who is 22,  graduated from Lorena in 2011 and Brody is currently in elementary school here.
