I love teaching children of all ages. I grew up in Austin, Texas as the oldest of three. I have an uncle and two aunts who are teachers. I wanted to be a teacher at a young age being inspired by my 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Sullivan. She pushed me to do my best and never give up even though I was a struggling student. I started college at SFASU where I met my wonderful husband. After getting married and moving to Houston I graduated from the University of Houston in 1995 with a degree in Early Childhood Education (Pre-K through 6th Grade). I received my certifications in EC-6 Generalist and ESL Supplement.
My prior experience as a teacher was with Houston ISD for 13. While working at Houston ISD, my teaching experience was with the following grade levels: Pre-K, 1st, 3rd, and 5th. I started substituting in Waller ISD in 2013 after taking three years off of work. I became a long term sub. At Turlington and fell in love with the environment, students, and staff and continued the rest of the school year as a STAAR Tutor. I became a full time teacher in the 2014-2015 school year. This will be my 17th year teaching in public schools and 3rd year at Turlington ES. I am very excited to return for the 2016-2017 school year and look forward to my Pre-K students walking into my classroom so I can shape them into young learners. I want them to enjoy coming to school and learning.
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 27 years. We have 4 wonderful children, 3 boys and a girl. My oldest, Joshua is working on his degree in teaching at the University of Houston Downtown Campus. He plans on teaching high school Science and coaching Swimming and Water Polo. Zachary has decided to work as he decides on his path for the future. Austin is going to be a junior in high school where he is a Drum Major for the marching band, and on the Swim and Water Polo Teams. My youngest, Gwendolyn is going to be a sophomore in high school where she is on the Swim Team. Both Austin and Gwendolyn go to Cypress Lakes HS.
