Teacher - 3rd Grade
I graduated from the University of Houston with a BBA. My major was in marketing and I worked in various marketing positions for 16 years. After many years of thinking about going back to school to become a teacher, my husband encouraged me to get my teaching certification. I went back to school and earned my certification to teach Early Childhood – 6th Grade (EC-6) from Region 4. This was the best decsion I have ever made! I love teaching kids and I feel blessed to have found my home here at Southside Elementary. This will be my 7th year in education.

I started teaching 7 years ago. I began my career with Humble ISD as a ParaEducator. Next, I was hired on with Aldine ISD and I worked as a teacher there for two years in 3rd grade teaching English Langauge Arts (ELAR) and Social Studies. My next assignment was with New Caney ISD where I taught 4th grade for one year. I have found my home as a 3rd grade ELAR/Social Studies teacher here at Southside Elementary. This will be my 3rd year here at Southside.
This year, I will start out as the English Side Remote Learning Teacher, for all subjects.
Previous Positions: Marketing Director at various companies in Houston.
I am married to my favorite person who is also my best friend. We will be married 17 years in December. I have a 22 year old son, a 20 year old daughter and 14 year old daughter. We have a crazy dog named Coco, who we adore. I have lived in Houston for the past 30 years and I love it down here! Before that, I lived in East Texas but. I was born in California and was raised there until I was 10 years old. I believe I can call myself a “Texan” by now!
My favorite hobby is to travel. When I travel I like to hike, scuba dive/snorkel, ride horses, visit historal sites and go whitewater river rafting. Some of my favorite vacation spots are the Colorado moutains or Hawaii. I had the opportunity to vacation in Greece last year. I hope to get a chance to go overseas again someday. I also love to bike ride and work out when I can find the time. I always enjoy a good book to read!
