Welcome to 8th grade!!
 
I am proud to be one of the 8th Grade Language Arts teachers. This is my 5th year here at La Porte Junior High.  I'm very excited to start this year with a great group of kids.


This is my 15th year teaching.  I've loved every minute of it!!
 
A little about me....
 
Family:
 
I've been married for 12 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!!
