    About Me
    Hi! I am so excited to be teaching 7th grade Language Arts and my new venture into the MAPS Humanities course this year!
    To get to know me a bit better, here is a bit about me. I am a graduate of Texas A&M University with a degree in both English and History. I have taught in Alvin ISD for going on eighteen years. I have been married to a wonderful and supportive husband for the past 17 years.  I am the proud parent of two boys who also attend Alvin ISD schools (Alvin HS and Alvin JH. I collect elephants and dragons. I love to fold origami cranes. So far, I have folded close to 600 cranes in the past 7 years.... that is a lot of folding!!!
    What do I enjoy doing? READING!!! I have read several wonderful books this summer and plan to read all of the Texas Lonestar books by the end of this school year. What adventures have you lived between the pages of a good book?
    I will be posting links to sign up for Edmodo classes and the Remind 101 system. These two systems will allow our classes to stay connected through the internet. Edmodo is a system that will allow students to post some of their work online. The Remind 101 system will allow me to send reminder texts or emails to students and parents about important due dates or supplies needed for the following day in class.

    I hope we have a wonderful time this year exploring pieces we will read and writing our own adventures!
