Hello! This is my second year as a Northwest Bear, and I am so excited to be here! I teach 5th grade reading, writing, and social studies. I graduated in 2003 from West Texas A&M in Canyon, TX. Go Buffs! I have been married to Kyle for almost 20 years, and we have 3 amazing, spunky children. We have 2 mutts, Lizzy and Stanley, who think they are children also. In my free time, which is rare these days, I usually have a book in my hand. I am passionate about sharing this love for reading with my students.
