Mission Statement

I use my passion for reading and writing to encourage a love of reading and writing in my students by providing them the time to read a variety of texts and giving them control over what they write about so they will be able to successfully express, explain, evaluate, inquire, analyze, and argue ideas, issues, and problems.

Contact Information:

A Little About Me

This is my tenth year at Cedar Valley, and I thoroughly enjoy being a teacher of reading and writing. I hope all of my students increase their interest in both reading and writing while they are in my class. I am a native Texan, studied journalism at the University of Texas at Austin, and worked in media relations for several years. My husband Jamie is an Aggie and is a software engineer. We have four kooky children who keep us laughing: Michael, a 2012 Westwood High School graduate, is working on a doctorate in neuroscience at UT-Austin; Claire, a 2016 Westwood graduate, studies vocal performance at the University of North Texas; Catie, a 2018 Westwood graduate, is studying acting and directing at Stephen F. Austin State University; and Mollie, a sophomore at Westwood, is active in the Jr. ROTC program. As both a parent and educator, be assured that I understand the challenges that students and parents face, because my children and I deal with the same things in our lives. We are all on the same team, and I look forward to being a part of a successful year for all of my students.
