This is my 17th year of teaching, but my second year in Pearland ISD. I have taught journalism, 8th grade ELA, 7th ELA, and served as instructional coach for 7-8 ELA.
I am originally from Iowa, but I've been in Texas for the last 17 years, so I think I'm officially a Texan now! My husband and I live in Pearland with our 9 year-old TRIPLETS!!
I love gardening, attempting to be crafty, and spending time with my family.
