Our Disney tripCollin's Graduation

All About Me!
Welcome to Kindergarten!  I am so excited to be your teacher this year!  This will be my first year as a Timberline Tiger, but my 14th year in education.  I am very honored to be joining GCISD!  I have a Masters in Special Education and a Masters in School Counseling.  Most of my educational career has been in special education, specifically behavior programs.
I moved to Grapevine from Houston three years ago to marry my amazing husband, Matt.  Our beautiful, blended family includes three children: Collin (18 years old), Clover (11 years old), and Leven (10 years old).  Collin is starting his freshman year at Tarleton State University this fall before transferring to Texas A&M next fall.  Clover will be in the sixth grade and Leven in the fifth grade.  My husband is an Aggie, so we are always yelling for Texas A&M, especially football.  In addition to Aggie football, I LOVE sloths!  You will see from my room decor they are my spirit animal.  
I look forward to collaborating with you and making this year a successful one for your child!
