HOWDY! Welcome to 5th Grade! I am so excited for the upcoming year at Oakcrest Intermediate! I am starting my 7th year of teaching. I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2007! Gig 'em! I have taught different grade levels and have really enjoyed the experience of working with children of varying ages! I really believe that 5th grade is a special year for students, and I enjoy watching the growth and progress this year brings.

I have 2 children of my own, Emery and Keaton. I love my fur babies too! We have 2 dogs, Aksel and Leah, as well as a cat named Maggie. I will be sharing many stories this year about my family in my writing in class. My family loves being outdoors and working in the garden, going for walks, and riding bikes.

I love sharing my love for reading with my students! My goal is to share at least 1 book that your child will love and enjoy hearing and reading this year.
