About Me

As your child's Science and Social Studies teacher, I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself and express my excitement about partnering with you, as we work with your child to have a great year!

I have served in education for almost ten years in a variety of roles, from elementary and preschool education to educational research and development. Having previously taught 3rd grade Science/Social Studies at Ellisor, I have also taught 4th grade as a student teacher. I hold a Master’s Degree in Education from Texas Tech University, and went on to work in educational research with Houston ISD and M.D. Anderson - Behavioral Sciences. In addition, I have been married to my wonderful husband Jason for over 15 years, and we have an amazing, eleven year old daughter named Lauren.

I believe that creating a classroom atmosphere where each student feels safe, loved, and successful will enable children to flourish. I know that, together, we can make this a wonderful school year for your child. My conference time is from 9:10 until 9:55. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. It is important to keep communication open between us, and I hope to talk to you whenever you feel the need. My email is
