Welcome to 3rd grade! It is a year with much growth and development.  I began my teaching career 19 years ago in Cy-fair ISD. Over the years I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grades. My favorite is 3rd! I have twelve years experience teaching 3rd grade. I have been in the Tomball School District for the past eight years and I am excited to be at Willow Creek again this year.

I am a native Houstonian, I grew up and went to school in the Spring area. I attended the University of Houston, which I still enjoy visiting during football season! I am married and have two children.  My son is a sophmore at TMHS this year, and my daughter is in 7th grade at WWJH.  I look forward to working with you and your child this year!
