I have been teaching for 13 years. The first 4 years of my career I taught kindergarten at Spring Lake Park Elementary in Texarkana Independent School District. For the past 9 years I have taught at Red Lick. I have taught kindergaten my whole carrer except one year, I taught 1st grade. First grade is great, but kindergarten is my passion. I love being students first teacher in elementary school. :-)
My husband Shawn and I have been married for 17 years. We have two sons. My oldest is Dawson. He is 15and a sophmore at Hooks High School. My youngest is Hayden. He is 9 and is in 4rth grade here at Red Lick Elementary. We are dog lovers!! We have 3!!! We have two dachshunds and 1 blue heeler. They are spoiled rotten!! My family loves the outdoors!! When hunting season rolls around all of my boys head to the woods!! That is a passion that my husband and I share is to get youth interested in being in the outdoors. Whether it be hunting or fishing. We feel it is a good way to teach kids values and to keep them in a positive activity.
I love my job!! Our children and families make Red Lick the best place to be!! When I am not school, I love to spend time with family and friends!! My favorite place on earth is the beach!! It is the most peaceful place to be in my opinion!! To relax and unwind, I like to get pedicures and drink green tea with cranberry from Sonic!! ;-)
