Hi there! I am super excited to be teaching the NeSmith Pre-kindergarten class this fall 2017. This is my third year teaching pre-k, but my first year here in this area. I love teaching and grew up with both parents as teachers so it is very close to my heart. My goal is to inspire self-driven discovery in each of my students and a love for learning.
I am recently married to my husband Keith, and moved to Wylie about a year ago. We are a real life Brady Bunch. We have 6 kids together between the ages of 7 and 21, a cat named Aspen and a dog named Suzie. I grew up in Texarkana, AR and taught middle school and junior high science for two years before coming back to the younger grades.
I believe communication is key to having a collaborative relationship between parents, kids and teachers and want to encourage parents to call, email or set up a visit during my conference period if there are any concerns. My conference period is 8:15am-9:00am Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
I look forward to meeting all of you at Meet the Teacher on Aug 17th @ 4:30pm.
