I am excited to be your teacher this year!


  • I was born and raised in Austin! Yes, one of the few natives!
  • I graduated with a teaching degree in 2000, with a specialization in Special Education.
  • I have been a 5th grade homeroom teacher, a 6th grade World Cultures teacher, a Resource/Inclusion teacher, and the I.B. (International Baccalaureate) Coordinator for AISD.
  • Of all the experiences I’ve had, my favorite is Special Education. It has my heart!
  • I love all things outdoors. Camping, fishing, hiking, lake, beach, mountains…
  • I place high value and priority in living and modeling a healthy lifestyle. I did Crossfit for 4 years and am currently a member of a local Camp Gladiator group. I also run, but I don’t love running!
  • I have a son, Blake, who is 11 years old. He loves ice hockey and his PS4.
  • I have a German Shepherd, a chihuahua, and a cat!
  • And just for fun, I enjoy live music, country dancing, and anything that involves the opportunity for me to be creative.
  • Some quotes I love: “I didn’t come this far to only come this far.” “I know how to cook, I just don’t.” “It’s never too late to live happily ever after.”
