5th Grade ELAR Teacher Wooden Elementary
Red Oak ISD

This is my 27th year in education. I have taught all grades except Kindergarten and 1st grades. This is my 5th year at Red Oak ISD where I previously taught 6th ELAR, 6th Social Studies, 6th ELAR Resource, and was an educational diagnostician at Wooden Elementary and Red Oak High School. 

I have been married to my husband, Dave, for 33 years. We have two sons: David, 28 and Chris, 21. We have spoiled German Shepherd named Lily, who keeps us laughing at home. I am originally from Arkansas and can do an awesome "Hog Call." My favorite hobbies are traveling, watching sports, and reading.

I am blessed to be a teacher at Wooden Elementary. I am looking forward to a great year in ELAR, where I know students will do amazing things this school year!
