I am starting my 11th wonderful year as a teacher here in Lovejoy ISD, and I am excited to be back teaching English I and English II for the 2017-2018 school year. While I have lived in Texas for almost 26 years, I grew up all over the United States and even spent time in Germany and Belgium. (My dad served in the Army). I graduated from George Mason University in Virginia and worked in management and corporate training before starting my teaching career. I currently live in Allen with my husband, Kent, my daughter Emily, and my son Cody. My daughter graduated from New York University, and my son is a student at Texas A&M University, (Whoop!). When I am not teaching, I love to read, knit, garden, and watch sports! (Aggies, Texas Rangers, Dallas Mavericks) I also love my morning coffee and walking my two dogs - Albus and Lily. I am looking forward to another amazing year of teaching . I am truly grateful for the opportunity to learn and work with students each day.
