Meet the Teacher
2016-2017 is my 35th year to teach! Wow! I still love my students and love to teach. That’s why I am here! I have taught 30 of those years in this district, 22 years teaching seventh grade English, and 8 years teaching gifted and talented classes here at University Heights Intermediate. I now teach fourth and fifth grade THINK and TAP, two intervention classes, and third grade enrichment. I love to learn along with my students. We often study interesting subjects as well as create masterpieces that expand our ideas.
My husband and I have been married for 37 years. We have raised a son, Hunter, and a daughter, Ambrea. Hunter is married and has a baby girl. Ambrea, too, is married and has a three year daughter. We are very family oriented people who hang out together, go to the lake and beach in the summer, and more.
I love to be outdoors, do yoga, read, paint, go on road trips, read the Bible, and walk for exercise. I am self-motivated, active, fun-loving, somewhat adventurous, a bit reserved, and practical.
