About Me

  • I am delighted to become a Bluebonnet Elementary Cardinal! Please rest assured that I am prepared to make this an excellent year for your child.  I have taught Kindergarten, First grade, and Reading Intervention.  I love teaching early literacy skills and am thrilled to be back in Kindergarten!  I live in Cedar Creek with my wonderful husband, my sweet 13 year old son Alex, my creative 11 year old daughter Mia, and my two silly dogs named Allie and Copper. I am also the proud mother of an 18 year old son, Rolando, who will be a U.T. Freshman this fall! This will be my 23rd year teaching.  I have a strong purpose to educate young students and help them to become responsible, caring, and successful individuals.

    Educational background: I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin in 1993 with a Bachelors of Science in Applied Learning & Development. Hook 'em horns! 

    Certifications & Training: 

    • ESL Supplemental, PK-8
    • Gifted & Talented


    I believe that a good parent-teacher relationship is necessary for maximum school success. Throughout the year I will communicate with you through notes, e-mails, telephone calls, newsletters/calendars, and parent-teacher conferences.
