I graduated from Tarkington High School in 2003 and I graduated from Sam Houston State University in 2009.
I have my Bachelor’s in English and am certified to teach English Language Arts for grades 4-12.
I have attended all required professional development courses for DISD and have attended the C.H.A.M.P.S and Tools for Teachers workshops.
This is my first year teaching at DISD and I am currently teaching English II.
I began my teaching career at Livingston Junior High in 2015 and taught there for two years before becoming a part of the Dayton ISD family. In addition to this I have worked at Sylvan Learning Center and have worked as an English tutor periodically for 5 years. I have enjoyed ever aspect of teaching career and look forward to gaining more skills that will help my students to be successful.
I married my high school sweetheart, John, in February of 2010, and we have a beautiful three year old daughter, Elizabeth. We have two cats, Bella and Poppy, and one dog, Tonks.
When I am not teaching I enjoy reading, catching up on T.V. shows and spending time with my family.
