This is all new and will remain fluid.

ABOUT ME:
Hello Bartlett Bulldogs!!  I am excited about the 2019-2020 school year!   
I intend to prove that learning is fun, reading is an adventure, and
writing is the best expression of self.  All students can succeed.  

I earned my  Bachelors of Art from Midwestern State University and  my teaching credentials from Texas Teachers.  This will be my third year in the classroom.  Prior to teaching, I had a thriving career in sales and marketing, but it lacked purpose.  My passion for 25 years has been volunteering in my community serving children of all ages.  After raising my children,  I left my sales career, earned my credentials, and am now living a life of renewed passion and purpose.  

I have been married to my husband, Brad, for 26 years.  Our son, Brady, is a graduate of Oklahoma State, and our daughter, Ellie, is a Senior at TCU. 
In my free time,  I enjoy time with family and friends, hiking, traveling, and of course READING.  A dream I have is to write a book!
