This is my 6th year in Troy and my 23rd year of teaching. I am currently teaching 2nd grade Reading, Writing, and Social Studies.
I began my career at Jefferson Elementary in Temple teaching 2nd grade. I stayed home to take care of our babies and I returned to education as an elementary librarian when our youngest began Kindergarten. I returned to the classroom 2 years later. I taught 2nd grade at Kennedy-Powell Elementary in Temple for several years before moving to 4th grade in Little River Academy. In the summer of 2013, I made what I intend to be my last move – to Troy ISD! I began teaching 3rd grade that first year here, then I had the opportunity to loop up with my homeroom to 4th grade and stayed in 4th for 2 years before returning to my 2nd grade home.
