I graduated from Kaufman High School and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from U.T.Tyler. I taught 3rd grade math in Kaufman for 24 years, before moving to the gym to teach P.E. for three years. I'm back in the classroom, planning to share my passion for math to students here at Kemp Intermediate. I will be teaching RTI (Response to Intervention) math. I am married and have two kids. We love spending time at the lake, and I love to water ski and wake surf.
I truly believe that we, as teachers, must teach kids perseverance. Inner drive and determination will help them achieve their goals and dreams.
"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." ---- Ralph Waldo Emerson
