As a PN-G graduate and former Indianette Lieutenant, I am THRILLED to be teaching in Port Neches as part of the Woodcrest Tribe. After teaching in the Houston area for the last sixteen years, I have found my way home and I am so glad I did. While in Houston, I obtained several teaching certifications, as well as a masters' degree in Reading from the University of St. Thomas. I am a dog mom to the sweetest little boy, Herbie, and for the first time in fourteen years, he FINALLY has a yard!! My niece, Paisley, is my very best friend and she is following in her "TuTu's" footsteps as a Taylor Dancer. I love to learn and hope to instill a love for learning in my students. I am looking forward to working with each of you to grow and support the little leaders in our class.
