I graduated from The University of Massachusetts Amherst with a BS in Family and Consumer Science Education. After working as a Special Education Paraprofessional in several states I earned my Texas Special Education Teacher Certification in May of 2015. For the past three years I've been at Lovejoy High School with the Work Based Learning classes, and with Lovejoy ISD's Vocational Transition Program.
I'm originally from Massachusetts but call Texas home now.  My husband is retired from a 22 year career in the Air force.  We moved quite a bit and had some great adventures.  Our 5 kids don't know where they are "from" and now live all over the world including Melbourne, Australia.  In my spare time I enjoy baking, reading, walking, watching HGTV and playing with grandkids.  
This year I will be with the Transition Program, off campus periods one through six and teaching Occupational Preparation 1 eighth period at Lovejoy High School.
