Welcome to La Porte Junior High!!
 
I am one of the 7th Grade Language Arts teachers and Reading Lab teacher. This is my 3rd year here at La Porte Junior High.  I'm very excited to start this year with a great group of kids.


This is my 13th year teaching.  I've loved every minute of it!!
 
A little about me....
 
Family:
 
I've been married for 10 years to my fabulous husband, Michael. We have 3 children, Parker, Logan, and Mason. They are the best and I always have super fun stories and pictures to share about them.
 
Education/Experience:
 
I am a product of LPHS. I graduated in 2001. I attended East Texas Baptist University. I have worked in Clear Creek my first 10 years. My background is in SPED and Reading intervention.

 

I love junior high and can't wait to be a part of your lives!!
