Advanced Academics


I have three wonderful children. 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 just recently married in Zion National Park. Absolutely beautiful! We are so excited to have Celeste as part of our family! Jena is a Senior at A&M and will be graduating in May with a degree in Industrial Distribution...Whoop! Will is in 6th grade and is ready to be free of having to attend the same school as his mama for the past 6 years. They keep us busy visiting College Station and with all of Will's sports activities. 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 and enjoy going to every day.


I am currently in my 17th year of teaching with Alvin ISD. I taught 1st grade for 7 years and am now in my 10th 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.
