A little bit about me..........This is my second year to teach First Grade at Broadway Elementary and the students at Broadway are by far some of the best I've had the pleasure of teaching. My teaching career started out with working in Aldine ISD and Klein ISD before coming to Conroe ISD. I am happy to say that I am starting my 10th year of teaching and my 4th year in CISD. I LOVE my job!
I have been married to my amazing husband, Bryan, for over 10 years. I am a mom of twins! My daughter Audrey and my son Gavyn are five years old and will be starting Kindergarten at Broadway this school year. In my free time I love spending time with my family, going to the pool any chance I get, reading a good mystery novel, shopping, all things Magnolia Market and going on fun adventures/ traveling.
I am originally from Massachusetts but lived so many years in Florida, that I consider myself from both states, before moving to Texas over 12 years ago. I am a proud graduate of the University of Central Florida .............GO Knights!! Charge On!
I look forward to getting to know you better as we work together to make this a great year for your child!
