Hello!! Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Eastridge Elementary!
I'm so excited to be here! This will be my 6th year teaching second grade and my 2nd year at Eastridge. I was born and raised in Arlington and have previously lived in Austin for the past 10 years and am thrilled to be back in the North Texas area. I graduated from Texas State University with my degree in elementary education. I love 2nd grade and think it is a pivotal year for students!
My husband is also a teacher! He teaches theater arts in Keller ISD. We have been married for 3 years and love theatre arts and relaxing at home! While we do not have any human children, we have 2 adorable fur babies. We have a beagle mix named Luna. She is 7 years old and loves to cuddle. We also have a Siberian Husky named Duke. He is 2 years old and loves to run in the sprinkler. They are the light of our lives and we love being with them!
This year is going to be amazing year! Parent communication is very important to me, so feel free to contact me anytime with any of your questions or concerns!
