    A little about me......

         I am entering my 5th year of teaching high school and my 2nd year here, at AHS.  I grew up in the North Houston area, completing a double major in English and History @ Texas A&M (whoop!) and my masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Sam Houston State.  

       

         I am married to my wonderful husband, Jason, who works at Texas Children's Hospital in sleep research/medicine.  He is hilarious, a wonderful daddy and my best friend.  We have two sons: James, 7 1/2 and DJ, 3.  James is in 2nd grade and loves playing little league baseball.  DJ is a rowdy little guy who loves dinosaurs and trucks.  We are also thrilled to have welcomed Lily in December of 2018!  When I'm not teaching, I love to read, cook, watch college football (gig 'em!) & the MLB (go 'Stros!) and spend time with loved ones at my family's place on the Guadalupe River.

         

         I absolutely love working with high school students and sharing my love of reading. My goal each year is to see my students believe in themselves, succeed, and hopefully laugh along the way. I really strive to create a safe place for my kids, an environment where they can learn and grow without fear of judgement or lack of support. 

         I highly encourage communication with my students and their families and ask that you please reach out to me via email (easiest way to assure I get your message).  I will do my very best to get back with you asap.  Please let me know if you have any questions, comments or concerns.  I look forward to a great year-go Jackets!
