This is my 18th year of teaching, but my third 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 18 years, so I think I'm officially a Texan now! My husband and I live in Pearland with our 10-year-old TRIPLETS!!
I love gardening, attempting to be crafty, and spending time with my family.

My goal is to instill a love of reading and writing in my students that will increase their success in all areas of their lives.
