I have worked for Lavaca School District since 2013. I was the 21CCLC Before & After School District Coordinator for one year, where I managed the programs for both Lavaca Elementary and Lavaca Middle Schools. I then moved to Coordinated School Health, where I was the District Coordinator for two years. In 2016, I began my current position as the 6th Grade English Language Arts teacher at Lavaca Middle School. I also teach Reading Intervention and Learning Skills classes.
I am married to Jason, who grew up in and graduated from Lavaca. We have been married for nearly 21 years. Our daughter, Brynn, just graduated from Lavaca High School with Honors, and is attending Arkansas Tech University this fall, majoring in Graphic Design. We have a “Dorkie” (Dachshund– Yorkie mix) named Ellie and a (very mischievous) cat named Oliver.
Teaching is my passion, but I have many other interests and hobbies. I am also an online ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher. I get to teach Chinese students to speak, read and write, and do math in English. It is an amazing experience! Aside from this and spending time with my family, I enjoy reading, making quilts, taking walks or running outdoors, and listening to my husband play music and sing. I like old (like from the 40s through the 80s) TV shows and movies, and I like to do jigsaw puzzles, crossword puzzles, play board games, and do any type of word or trivia game I can find. I thrive on challenges, so I consider myself a lifelong learner!
