    About Me
    This is my ninth year teaching at Passmore Elementary, and it is my fourth year as Literacy Coordinator.  Writing and Reading are my passion, and each year I teach, I pass my love of writing on to others, students as well as teachers.  Feel free to contact me at anytime either by phone or e-mail.
    I attended and graduated from Alvin Schools and continued my education at the University of Houston to obtain my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education.  GO COOGS!!!  In May 2017, I graduated with my Master's Degree in Educational Management from the Univeristy of Houston - Clear Lake.  Outside of school I enjoy going to concerts, shopping, listening to music, spending time at the beach, taking photos, watching sports, shopping, trying to keep the 80's alive, visiting with family and friends, and shopping!
