Welcome to Music!

I can't believe this is my 6th year to teach at WCES!

I was raised in Abilene, TX (My father was the Head of the Music Department at Abilene Christian University). 

After receiving my degree in Music Education and a Masters in Elementary Education, I taught in Mesquite ISD, Dallas Christian School, Cy-Fair ISD, and Tomball ISD. I have taught K - 6 Music, as well as middle school and high school choir. In addition to teaching, I stayed home with my children, Abby (27) and Bryce (25) and worked at an independent oil company.

In 2009, I moved from the Dallas area to the Houston area to marry my high school sweetheart, Michael Nelson. We live in Tomball, are active at Bammel Church of Christ, and love to travel and read! This summer, we enjoyed the United Kingdom (London and Warwick), Ruidoso, NM, and Colorado.

I am a HUGE Dallas Cowboy fan, and I LOVE being in the Music Room with the WCES students! I look forward to a WONDERFUL year!
