I have been married to my husband, Jimmie, for 11 years. He is a Rockport Alum but I am originally from Austin, TX. We have two incredible little girls, Makenzie (8) and Charlee (6), that we are so proud of. We have two dogs, Sophia and Coco (Coco just had 10 puppies!).
I went to college at Sam Houston State University on a soccer scholarship and earned a degree in Kinesiology and English. This will be my second year teaching 8th grade ELAR at Rockport-Fulton Middle School and I LOVE it!
This year is going to look a little different but I love overcoming new challenges. I have missed our students so much and know we are going to have an amazing year together.
I am an English nerd! My passion is reading and writing. I want stories to come alive to my students. I want them to feel like the characters have become our best friends. In books we can travel to new worlds, fight enemies, experience everything there is in life, and even the most extraordinary adventures become a part of us.

There are just too many books to list!
The poem that really shaped me and inspires me to this day is Robert Frost's poem, "The Road Not Taken".
