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

This is my 22nd year teaching and 14th 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!
