After graduating with an Elementary Education degree from the University of Texas at Austin, I moved back to my hometown of Plano to teach 4th grade. Three years later, I returned to UT (Hook ’em!) to get my Master’s Degree in Counseling. The training helped me to be a better teacher by understanding children on not just an academic level, but also a socio-emotional level. I returned to the Dallas area to teach 3rd grade in a private school setting for a couple of years. During this time, I married my wonderful husband Michael. We have 2 sweet children, Sadie and Clark. I currently stay home to take care of my little ones and substitute teach on occasion. I enjoy teaching Sunday school at my church, hiking with my family, and sipping coffee while reading a good book.
