This is my 6th year teaching at Emile. Previously, I taught 11 years in Deer Park, ISD and one year in Sheldon ISD, both suburbs of Houston. My certification is 1st-8th, General Education, History specialization and ESL. I have taught all subjects in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades. Teaching is my second career and I love it, having spent 15 years in the oil industry when I first graduated from college. I attended UT Austin and received my degree from the University of California, Davis.
When my husband retired from his job in the chemical industry, we moved from Deer Park to Bastrop. We have a son who lives in Mississippi and has 3 children. Our daughter lives in Waco. My husband and I live with a Pomeranian named Honey, a puppy named Maci, and a 17 year old cat named Skye. Some of the things we enjoy are camping, hiking and attending Longhorn football games!
