    About Me 
    I am entering my seventeenth year of teaching, my twelfth at Manvel High School.  I have grown up moving around Texas but spent my teenage and adult years in and around the Houston Area.  I received my bachelor's degree from Sam Houston State University in 2002 and completed my Master's degree at University of Houston Clear Lake in 2011. I am certified to teach secondary English and all-level music and have my certification to be a principal in Texas. 

    My husband and I have been married for 15 years and have two children, Anna (13) and John (9).  Anna is very excited to return to Manvel Junior High and, John looks forward to fourth grade at E.C. Mason Elementary.  As a family of readers, there is always a book open in our household; Anna enjoys realistic fiction, especially if it is a series, my husband reads non-fiction articles, magazines, and books, John is reading anything about Ninjas and sharks, and I am currently reading several fiction and non-fiction texts.   
    This year I will be the instructional coach for the English department and teaching English II for sophomores; it is my sixth year teaching sophomores at Manvel HS. 
    Remind:  I have created a Remind account for this class.  At the end of each day, I will text a reminder about what you should be doing at night for this class.  It can range from pages to read, assignments due, reminders to bring books, etc.   It is completely OPTIONAL to sign up.  A few things to remember:
            1.  If you don’t have unlimited texting or the app, it will cost for the texts.
            2.  This is not a personal account, so there will be nothing except classroom information.
