About Me

 I have been an educator for 26 years now.  I began my teaching career in 
Lubbock, Texas where I spent my first three years teaching 1st, 2nd and 5th 
grades (after graduating from Texas Tech).  I then taught 4th grade for 
three years in Okinawa, Japan.  I have now been teaching at Fern Bluff 
Elementary for the last 20 years. During that time I taught TAG for 6 
years and am going on my 14th year teaching 4th grade. 
    My minor in college was Math and I have always enjoyed teaching it, but 
having been a 4th grade teacher for the last 10 years, I have found a love 
for writing. I also love sharing my interest in children's literature with 
my students (and any other kids that will listen). My goal above all else is 
to make learning fun for my students and to help foster life-long learners.

   My husband, Landon, and I have been married for 25 years.  We have three 
boys.  Kyle is 24 years old, Caleb is a 21 years old and Cameron is 17 years 

   I am very excited about this school year.  We have a wonderful 4th grade 
team and I have a wonderful class
