Welcome to my webpage! I am one of the six teachers on the Second Grade team at Whitney Elementarty.  I am a graduate of the University of Texas in Arlington with a degree in Architecture.  I later received my certification as a Generalist Grades (EC-6) and English as a Second Language Supplement.  I have 4 years expierence as an elementary teacher and have also been very involved with the UIL Storytelling Team. 

I am happily married and have three children, and two grandchildren.  My husband, Cody, is a 25 year veteran with the City of Killeen as a Firefighter/ Paramedic.  All three of my children are graduates of Whitney High School. My youngest, who just graduated in 2018, is now a recruit in the Army @Fort Benning, GA. Our family loves getting together for just about anything.  Mainly for anything that involves food!
