6th Grade ELA & Special Education
Hello! Welcome to my webpage. I am a 2000 graduate of West Burlington High School in West Burlington, Iowa. I attended Iowa State University from 2000-2005. There, I studied Music Education while performing and studying flute theory. I moved to Texas in 2006 and graduated from the University of Houston-Downtown in 2012 with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I started working in education in 2009 and became a certified teacher in General Ed. EC-6 and Special Education in 2012.
My passion for working in education comes from my love for kids...I find it so exciting to challenge my students to be the very best person they can be. With guidance, knowledge, and my support, my students will have the tools they need to be successful in the BIG world around them.
I have been a 6th Grade ELA and Special Education teacher at WWJH since 2016.
I am married to my wonderful husband, Jason. We have two beautiful and fun-loving daughters. Faith is 11 years old starting 6th grade and Joanna is 3 years old and is very excited to start Pre-K at Colbert Elementary. We love to play, watch movies, and visit our families. We also have the BEST rescue pup, George.
