Advanced Academics


I have three wonderful children and a Rhodesian Ridgeback named Murphy. Nicholas graduated from U of H in the Spring of 2017 and is now employed as an apprentice electrician working his way up. He and his fiance were married last year in Zion National Park and are buying a home in Manvel. I am so excited to have them closer to us! Jena graduated from A&M in May with a degree in Industrial Distribution...Whoop! She is now employed with Puffer Sweiven, but working from home! Will is in 7th grade and is ready to be back to school with his friends. It has been a rough couple of months having all of us work from home and not socializing with friends! I love to spend my time with my family outside doing any type of activity or sport, but we truly enjoy being on the water or around the water with this terrible Texas heat. I am truly blessed to have a wonderful husband, adorable intelligent children and a career I deeply love!


I am currently in my 18th year of teaching with Alvin ISD. I taught 1st grade for 7 years and am now in my 11th year teaching as an Advanced Academic Specialist for Walt Disney Elementary. I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Child Psychology from Morningside College in Sioux City, IA. I then moved to Maryland where I taught for 1 year before moving to Colorado. In Colorado I taught for 2 years before finally moving to Alvin, Texas where we now call home.
