I have taught English I Pre-AP, English II, English IV, AP English IV, Journalism, Yearbook, Newspaper, Business English, Student Publications, and Career Prep. I am always excited to meet and teach a new set of students each year. I love the small town atmosphere in Decatur and can't wait to see the big things that happen this year! Go Eagles!I attended Texas Tech University and graduated with a Dual Bachelor of Arts in English and Psychology in 2004. I also earned my Master of Education in Secondary Education degree in 2009 from The University of North Texas. I am currently pursuing a Master of Science in Professional School Counseling at Angelo State University, and will finish in July 2022. I met my husband Patrick when we attended Texas Tech University, and we have been married since 2007. We welcomed a beautiful daughter named Colbie in November of 2011 and an amazing son named Patrick in August of 2014.When I am not teaching, grading or lesson planning, you can find me watching my kids swim at Fit N Wise or hanging out with my family on our land and enjoying every minute of it!DegreesDual Bachelor of Arts in English and Psychology-TTUMaster of Education in Secondary Education-UNTMaster of Science in Professional School Counseling from ASU-In ProgressGallup Strengths~Harmony~Consistency~Responsibility~Discipline~Relator
