I am so happy to be here with you at Magnolia Elementary teaching 3rd grade Language Arts! I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with courses at the University of Salamanca, Spain. I have taught in both Alvin and Friendswood and I have a son at Texas State University, a daughter at the University of Texas (Health and Science Branch Downtown Houston), and my daughter, Emily, here with me at Magnolia Elementary. In my spare time, I run around after my husband and children or you can find me reading a good book and playing with my dog, Skipper. I can't wait to share many of my favorite books with you this year as well as learn some of your favorites!
