Teach Like a Pirate

Current Position:

This is my 8h year at Justiss Elementary. I am one of the two Reading interventionists on our campus. I pull groups in grades K-4 to provide targeted, data-driven, researched-based instruction to get our students to grade-level expectations. I believe in a growth mindset approach and involve the kids by showing them their data in a kid-friendly way that they can understand. My teaching background is primarily in 1st grade. I have taught all subjects, GT, SPED, and departmentalized Reading/Writing. I believe Paris ISD offers the absolute BEST interventions for our at-risk students. 


 Thank you for choosing Justiss as your child’s school!  #Unstoppable

Previous Position:

Before becoming a teacher, I completed my internship and residency at Chisum Elementary. I observed and taught in a 1st grade self-contained classroom and a 4th grade Writing classroom. After completion of my coursework, I became a Pre-K teacher at Little Ark Learning Center here in Paris. 

Family Information:

I have two children who are my pride and joy! Brian a 6th grader and Delilah is in 1st grade. We have a cat named Jack that we rescued. We also have a crested gecko named Sunny that is often at school with me! The biggest baby of all is our Australian Shepherd, Bear. I am the middle child of two sisters, Liz and Jane. Outside of school we enjoy being in the gym, golf course, and at the beach!
