Welcome to 6th grade! I'm excited to get to know my Sloan Creek students and families.
I returned to Texas in 2015 after spending about eleven years in the Charlotte, NC area. While my family loved living near the mountains and beaches of the Carolinas, we are thrilled to be back close to family in the Dallas area. My family consists of my husband Justin, my two children, Drew and Avery, and my dog Felix. My children are also Lovejoy Leopards and attend Lovejoy Elementary. While I am new to Sloan Creek, I bring along twelve years of experience in teaching on a variety of grade levels.
I got my Master of Arts in Teaching from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. After graduating, I began my teaching career in Richardson ISD and taught at the elementary level for six years. While working in RISD, I obtained my gifted certification and ESOL certification. A year after I married, a career opportunity for my husband took us to Charlotte, NC. While in North Carolina, I taught 7th grade math and algebra, as well as, elementary grades.
I love teaching 6th graders and am excited to get to teach my favorite subject, Math, all day. My goal is to make my students' learning experience fun and engaging so that they enjoy math and have a memorable 6th grade year!
