A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME: I am excited to starting my fourteenth year of teaching elementary school. I grew up in the Spring area and graduated from Klein Oak High School.

We live in Tomball with our three daughters.: Hayden (who is in 3rd grade at Lakewood), Riley (2nd grade), and Campbell (4 years old). I enjoy swimming in our pool, cheering for the Aggies, eating out, reading books, and spending time with family.

Attendance Matters!

Dear Parents,

As we complete the first grading period, rigor and academic expectations continue to increase. Please help your child be successful by ensuring they are at school for the entire day. Often, students who are tardy or who leave early (especially Fridays) miss instruction that needs to be made up in order for students to build a solid foundation on concepts. 

While we know that emergencies and illness are inevitable, we appreciate your support in minimizing the amount of instruction students miss each year. It not only helps your student be successful, but it also helps us as teachers maximize the time we are given with your students.

Thank you for making learning a priority. We truly appreciate you.
