Welcome to 5th grade! I'm excited to get to know my Sloan Creek students and families.
I have a number of years experience in teaching in a variety of grade levels. I joined Lovejoy 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 husband Justin and I have two children, Drew and Avery, and a dog, Felix. My children are also Lovejoy Leopards.
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 5th 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 5th grade year!
