I was born and raised in Texas and currently reside with my husband and three children in Grand Prairie, Texas. I am active in my church and involved in my community as well as schools my children attend. I believe strongly in striving for excellence in all things, having completed both my undergraduate and graduate degrees with honors. I believe that my students should strive for excellence as well, and strive to offer them the opportunity to excel with patient and creative guidance. I also believe that children learn best when learning is fun and strive to find ways to teach children in a positive and motivating environment.
