Greetings to my new 8th grade Science students, parents and the Red Oak ISD community.

I have been teaching science since 2004. I started as a 5th grade science teacher. I taught 5th grade for five years at Focus Learning Academy, where I differentiated instruction for students with learning differences. I also taught 5th grade science in DeSoto ISD for two years before moving to Lancaster ISD. In Lancaster ISD, I taught 6th, 7th and 8th grade at Lancaster Middle School. I have also served as a science rotation teacher at Dallas ISD. Before coming to Red Oak Middle School, I was a Chemistry Honors/Physics Honors teacher at David W. Carter High School.

I have written science curriculum, served on TEA  Science advisory boards and have reviewed textbook adoptions for textbook companies. 

I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin and am a proud member of the Longhorn Nation!! Hook'em Horns!!!

I am a proud mother of two daughters, Kenedi and Triniti.

I love to travel and have a bucket list of countries that I check off every summer. Some places I have been so far are Italy, Morocco, Ireland, Mexico and England, Bahamas and Turks and Caicos. 

I am also trying to visit all 50 states. So far, I have been to Louisiana, Oklahoma, New Mexico, California,Arizona, New York, Virginia, Maryland, Massachussetts, Mississippi, Kansas, Nevada, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Georgia and Tennessee.

I love to listen to music and podcasts, read books and watch Netflix.
