Welcome to 6th grade!! I am so glad you are here!
This is my ninth year to teach 6th grade language arts at Tomball
Intermediate School and I am looking forward to the upcoming year! I have
taught in Tomball ISD for 10 years, but have been an educator for 27 years. I
previously taught in Conroe ISD and CyFair ISD before coming to Tomball. I
graduated from Texas ATM University in College Station and Cypress Creek High
School close by in Houston. My family relocated to Houston, Texas from
England when I was 7, so I spent the majority of my childhood in Texas! My
favorite past times are spent with my husband, family, and friends. My husband
and I have four awesome teenagers who keep us very busy. We love to travel,
especially to the beach! We also enjoy dining out and
trying new restaraunts with different types of food!
I love exercising and especially running. I am looking forward to a
fun filled year of challenges and learning. Each one of my students are
special and unique, and I feel blessed to get to know and experience each one
of them. 2017-2018 is going to be an awesome year!
My mission for the class is that we read, write, and think critically each
day to become life long learners.
