About Me

Welcome to 5th grade!
I will be teaching Reading, Language Arts and Social Studies this year. I am excited to begin this adventure with you and your child. I graduated from Tarleton State University in 2000. This will be my seventh year in ACISD and my 22nd year teaching. Through the years I have been an athletic trainer, taught high school and elementary PE, and 3rd, 4th and 5th grade Reading and Language Arts.
I am a basketball coach’s wife and have two boys, Chance will be starting at Texas A&M in College Station and Bryce will be a junior at RFHS. Our family loves being part of the 🏴‍☠️Pirate Nation💚💛 and living in Rockport.
