After graduating from the University of Texas in 1996, I began teaching with Bastrop ISD and am still here! I have taught Special Education, PK, and 2nd grade. 2019-2020 is my first year at Mina Elementary after many years at Red Rock Elementary. I'm excited to be at Mina and am enjoying getting to know the kids, families and staff. I love teaching and seeing the excitement on students' faces as they learn something new. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading, cooking, enjoying nature and hanging out with my dog Luna!
