Hello! I am so excited to be your child's teacher!

This is my 21st year teaching and 13th year at Decker Prairie. I graduated from Sam Houston State University. I am a super proud Mama of my Tomball High School daughter who also got her solid foundation at Decker Prairie Elementary. In my free time, I enjoy spoiling my three French Bulldogs and spending time with my family.

I absolutely love my job! For me, there is nothing better than watching the excitement in children's eyes and seeing the smiles on their faces as they learn something new. Thank you for sharing your child with me this year! Together we can achieve success!

Depending on the weather, it may have to be moved inside. The PE teachers will let us know. The kids can also bring easy board games to play in the afternoon.
