Bio

Hello parents and students!
 
I'm so glad to be teaching art at Tomball Intermediate School! I graduated from The University of Texas at El Paso with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, and obtained my Master's degree in Education from The University of St. Thomas. I have taught for 26 years- both as an elementary bilingual teacher and an art teacher. I am married and have three boys, two of which attend high school and one  who attends middle school. This summer was very busy! We had some remodeling done to our home and our family traveled to New York. I have a beautiful cat named Misha and a wonderful dog named Cinders, who thinks she owns the family!  I have a passion for art and enjoy exhibiting my oil and acrylic paintings. I look forward to a fantastic 2017-2018year!
