"Teachers who love teaching, teach children to love learning."

Currently in my 12th year of teaching, there is without a doubt nothing else I could love doing more! I am blessed to teach in my favorite place... Kindergarten!! I have taught kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade, but by far kindergarten is the most fulfilling and I am so grateful to be back!

I was born and raised in this area and love calling San Marcos home. I graduated from San Marcos High School (Go Rattlers) and received a Bachelor's degree from Texas State University (Eat ‘Em Up Cats). I have been so fortunate to have spent all of my teaching years right here in San Marcos at Travis Elementary (Once a Texan, Always a Texan) and the past 10 years at Bowie Elementary (Home of the Champions).

I love the small town feel of San Marcos and mostly being able to see my students and their families in town spending time together. I especially enjoy seeing my former students and families, even the now Juniors in High School that were my 1st Kinder class!!

When I am not in class sharing my love for reading, writing and learning with my students, you can find me spending my time with family and friends.
