About Me:

This is my 12th year in Iowa Park! I graduated from Tarleton State in Stephenville, Tx where I fell in love with the ideals of a small town life. Coming from the DFW area, I was beyond done with the traffic, hustle and bustle of city life and did I mention the traffic?!?

My favorite part of teaching in Iowa Park is the ability to watch my students from the time they enter my classroom until way after they've left. I traveled to Boston and tour Boston College with a former student, watched college baseball in Arizona and ran into a few on vacation! I love seeing current and former students any time of the year!

#onceminealwaysmine is the heart of my teaching philosophy!
