Teacher - 3rd Grade
I graduated from the main campus of the University of Houston with a BBA. My major was in marketing. I worked in marketing 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 6th year in education.

I started teaching 5 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. My next school was with New Caney ISD where I taught 4th grade for one year. I have found my home as a 3rd grade teacher here at Southside Elementary. This will be my 2nd year here at Southside teaching 3rd grade, which is my absolute favorite grade to teach.
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 16 years in December. I have a 21 year old son, a 19 year old daughter and 13 year old daughter. We have one fish and one 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 and I was born in California and was raised there until I was 10 years old. I believe I can call myself a full “Texan” by now!
My favorite hobby is to travel. When we travel we like to hike, scuba dive or snorkel, ride horses, and go whitewater river rafting. Our favorite vacation spots are always in the moutains or in Hawaii. I also love to bike ride and work out when I can find the time. I enjoy a good book to read.
