Hi! I am a native Texan originally from Baytown, just outside of Houston. My family relocated to Florida where I attended University of South Florida and received my degree in Elementary Education. I have my certification in ESL and GT as well. I met my husband Andrew just after graduation, and we married in 2001. We lived in lovely St. Petersburg, Florida for 14 yrs, where I taught at North Shore Elem. I was blessed to teach in second (10 yrs) and fourth grade( 3yrs) classrooms. I am proud to say I stay in touch with many of my former students and they have gone on to start their own journeys, attending and graduating college, beginning their professions, starting a family, and joining the military. I am so proud of each one of my students as they reach their goals and continue to be their best selves. After moving to the Houston area in 2013, I taught first grade, in the Sugar Land area for 6 years. Once we relocated to Boerne in 2019, I had an opportunity to teach 1st grade in BISD. With the pandemic I chose to stay home and care for my family last year.
We welcomed our sweet daughter, Vivienne in September of 2015, and now she is starting kindergarten! We are so excited to be in the Texas Hill Country and count our blessings that we are able to watch our daughter grow in this amazing area. As Vivienne begins her school journey, as a kindergartener, I am excited to begin my own adventure at Messiah Kids Preschool.
I believe God has guided my path to Messiah Kids to help enrich children's lives and be an active part in their developing faith. I am looking forward to the little sweet moments of learning and seeing the kids grow academically, developmentally as well as in their Faith. My passion and love for educating young minds hasn't wavered since I started teaching over 20 years ago. Each student that enters my classroom holds a special place in my heart. I believe that God has given each of His children a unique gift to share with the rest of us as we all continue to grow in our relationship with God.
I am so excited to meet my new crew as we grow and learn in grace this year.
