    Welcome to my teacher webpage! On the webpage, you will find my class schedule, my syllabus, and other links/information pertinent to the classroom.


    Here is a little about me: This is my fifth year teaching at Alvin High School, and I am excited for what we will accomplish this year. I grew up right here in Alvin and am a product of AISD's public school system. On my "free" time, I love to cook different types of cuisine, which also means that I am slightly addicted to Pinterest. In addition to cooking, I love to travel all over the United States with my husband. Traveling soothes my soul. I am also an avid reader and read all sorts of books, but my all-time favorite genre is realistic crime fiction. Literature is based on life's many experiences, so reading helps me to understand the world around me. I am always looking for ways to connect what we read in class with situations that occur in the real world. Reading is a passion and teaching is my calling, so to combine both interests fills my heart with joy!
