5th Grade Teacher
I graduated from Clovis High School in Clovis, New Mexico in May 1991. After high school, I moved to Long Beach, California and attended Long Beach City College to take all of my prerequisites for nursing. Then, I attended the University of Phoenix online and changed my major to teaching.
In May 2010 I received my Bachelor’s degree in Healthcare Administration. I continued college and obtained my Master’s degree in November 2012 in Curriculum and Instruction.
I started teaching at Brownfield ISD in August 2017. My first year, I taught 3rd grade (all subjects). My second year I taught 3rd grade reading. I am currently teaching 5th grade math.
I started teaching in January 2008. I began teaching 5th grade (all subjects) and did this for 3 years in Clovis, NM. Then, I wanted to change to 3rd grade so I had experience in different grade levels. I taught 3rd grade for 9 years In NM before I moved to Texas.
I have been married to my husband John since July 10, 2010. We got married on the beach in California. I have a daughter named Alleigh who is 22 and a son named Jordan who is 20. My daughter is a 3rd grade teacher in Clovis, NM at the same school where I began teaching! My son lives in Dodge City, KS and is the manager of a Love’s Travel Store.
We have two dogs, Sadie and Trixie. Sadie is 9 and Trixie is 11. They are small dogs so they like to snuggle a lot and they are so cute!!
When I am not teaching I like to travel to new places when the weather is nice. When it is cold outside, I like to stay inside and work on puzzles with my husband.
In the summer we like to go to Long Beach, California and spend a lot of time on the beach. This is our favorite vacation spot because there is so much to do! We also like to go to Dodger baseball games and hike to the Hollywood sign.
