I have been working in education since 1985 and have experience with students from Kindergarten-9th grade. I moved to East Texas in 1992 where I taught in Onalaska before coming to Livingston Junior High in 2000 the first year the building opened. During my years at LJH, I have taught all grade levels in Reading and English. In 2013 I began working with our Dyslexia students.
I have a son, Chris, who graduated from LHS in 1999 and attended SFA. In 2003, Chris moved to Los Angeles, California where he works as a writer. In 2007 I was blessed with a grandson and enjoy visiting the both of them couple times a year during our school holidays.
I enjoy my relaxing time outside of school with lake-front living on Lake Livingston. I have 2 miniature dachshunds, Kate and Hagrid, who are in full protection mode at all times, as well as being ready for playing fetch the tennis ball. I rescued an injured kitten that I found in my carport after Hurricane Rita, and named her Mariah which means "wind".
