I am excited to continue my journey in SISD! There is no better place to be! I have been teaching for 15 years, with the last 6 years being a Raider. I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 1st grade. I graduated from Texas A&M Commerce with a bachelore's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I grew up in the Mesquite area, then moved to Sunnyvale when I began high school. My two younger siblings were Raiders from kindergarten to graduation day. Teaching in Sunnyvale has allowed me to meet some of the best families and teachers around!

I live in Talty with my husband. We have 3 children; Kalyn who will be a sophomore at SHS, Colt will be in the 3rd grade at SIS, and Caiden is joining me at the elementarty for 3 year old pre-k. Over quarantine we brought home brother and sister boxer pups, Beau and Scout. They tend to keep us way busier than we ever thought we would be. When I am not with my family, I enjoy dinners with my girlfriends, shopping, and time relaxing. 

Some of my favorite things include: all things mexican food, chocolate, salty snacks, Sonic blackberry strawberry waters, Amazon, candles from Bath and Bodyworks, fall, pumpkin everything, the Aggies, a clean house, mowing the yard, and nights out with my husband and friends!
