This will be my first year as an official teacher as well as my first year in the Paris ISD school district. I am very excited to be able to start and hopefully build my career at such a loving and family oriented school. I prefer students to be engaged, challenged, but with the instruction that is also tailored to the specific needs of my students. I believe in personal connections as bridges that allow for enhanced learning and student development.
My love for teaching started seven years ago when I was working at a local day care as a two-year-old teacher. I worked at the daycare for four years before I made the decision to finish school and fulfill my dream of teaching. I started working at North Lamar ISD in 2014. I worked in the special education department for a year and then in Head Start for two years while completing my degree in education.
I have been married for seven years this past July! My husband Michael is also a teacher at Paris ISD. Michael has taught Skills USA and Automotive for the past six years. I have three “fur babies”, two dogs and one cat. Since I do not have children at the moment my pets are treated like my babies. I have a boxer/hound named Brinn (a year old), a lab mix named Eddie (a year old), and a beautiful cat named Riley (6 years old). When I am not at school or walking my dogs you will find me at the dirt track watching my husband race.
