• About Me

    This is my 20th year teaching! I have taught 4th grade for 11 years, 3rd grade for five years and four years in 2nd. I am very excited about our new second grade team at Emile!

    I was born and raised in Massachusetts until I moved to Austin, Texas in the 8th grade. I attended ACC for 9 years, taking a couple classes a semester when I could save up the money, while my children were young, continuing to work full time as a waitress. From there I transferred to Texas State in San Marcos and completed my bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies in Elementary Education. In 2011, I graduated from Concordia University with my master’s degree in Administarative Education. My certification is in grades 1 - 8, English as a Second Language and Gifted and Talented children.  I have 2 grown children, Derek and Stephanie, who attended AISD and continue to live in Austin. I moved to Bastrop with my husband 4 years ago and am thrilled at the opportunity to teach at such a great school as Emile!
