I am starting my 12th wonderful year as a teacher here in Lovejoy ISD, and I am excited to be back teaching English I 2018-2019 school year. While I have lived in Texas for almost 27 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 works as a writer in Dallas. 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 three dogs: Albus, Sophie and Lily. I am looking forward to another amazing year of teaching becauseI am truly grateful for the opportunity to learn and work with students each day.
