I have taught PK-4th grade over the past 14 years. I am currently teaching 2nd grade and absolutely love it. I have dual masters degrees in both Reading Specialist and Educational Administration from Stephen F. Austin University. I love intentional teaching with hands-on meaningful learning integrating literacy throughout the day. I have been a proud law enforcement officer's wife for 20 years. I am the mother to two amazing teenagers who keep me super busy!
