About Me

I am a newlywed - having married my hubby after a whirlwind courtship! He's truly the ying to my yang, I've feel lucky that we found each other.

I am the proud mom of a beautiful daughter, Marlena, who is a graduate of Texas Tech University and  now a nurse at Baylor. We shared graduation stories when I graduated with an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction in May 2011, and she graduated from high school in June 2011.

We share our home with our sweet, crazy and highly entertaining boxer, Jovi (yes, I am a HUGE Bon Jovi fan).


I am a former first grade teacher who did not imagine teaching any other grade. I was lucky enough to have taught at the same school for the last eleven years. That allowed me to stay in touch with my former students and watch their growth beyond first grade. But, alas, sometimes you need a change. So, I left my large district, moved to a tiny district, and now I'm a Kinder teacher! I never would have thought...

I was named Teacher of the Year at my old campus for the 2009-2010 school year.
