Welcome to 4th grade! The 2018-19 school year is going to be fantastic!
My Bio in brief
I have been teaching 4th and 5th grades in Taylor since 2008! I grew up in Houston, attended the University of Texas, graduated in 1990, and have been in Austin ever since. I enjoy spending time with my family out in Dripping Springs, singing karaoke on weekends, reading books and watching movies and tv series. So far in 2018 I have traveled to Iceland (!) and Akron, Ohio.
My conference time this year will be from 12:20 - 1:20pm.
