5th Grade Mathematics
I graduated from Aloha High School in 1978 in Aloha, Oregon. I graduated with an Associate degree from Lamar State College, Orange, Texas in 2006 and a Batchelor's degree from Lamar University in 2008.
I began with Mauriceville Elementary in 2008 and have enjoyed every minute of it. I taught 4th grade for seven years and have taught 5th grade for three years. This will be my fourth year teaching 5th grade mathematics.
I had previously worked for 16 years in financial institutions, I decided to stay home to raise my two sons. When my younger son began kindergarten, I decided to go to college and become a teacher. It was one of the best decisions of my life!
My husband and I have been married since 1993. We have two sons. Our first was born in 1994 and is now graduated from college and married. Our second son was born in 1998 and is attending college at Lamar University. I also have two awesome four-legged puppy “children”, Sam and Pepper, who both keep me on my toes.
I am originally from the beautiful state of Oregon, however, Texas has now been my home since 1991. I love this grand state and its history. I still try to visit Oregon when I can, but it always feels good to come home to Texas again. I love to read. It is my favorite thing to do when I am not teaching.
