I grew up in Kerrville, Texas though I had lived in Wisconsin as a young child. I graduated from Tivy High School in 1995; the same high school from which "Johnny Football" graduated not too long ago!
After graduating from The University of Texas-Corpus Christi in 1998, I moved to Florida. I did come back to Texas for a couple of years where I taught third and fourth grade on North Padre Island. But, I returned to Florida and spent ten years there. While in Florida I taught all things from high school and middle school English and then a wonderful three years as an elementary school librarian. Our school was a magnet school for the arts and it was a wonderful experience to work there as I obtained my Master's in Library and Information Science at the University of South Florida.
In all, though, I love being at Fort Sam Houston Elementary with your students so much! I am happy to be continuing here for the sixth year!
