I am glad that you are visiting my teacher web page so I would like to tell you a little bit about myself.
I grew up in Grand Prairie, Texas and I graduated from McMurry University in Abilene, Texas. I completed my Masters Degree with a concentration in Applied Behavior Analysis and Autism at Texas State University .
This is my 15th year to be teaching at Fern Bluff. I love my class and can't imagine teaching anywhere else. I am very fortunate to have great students, great parents and a great team. Our days are action packed and full of fun and learning.
We have lived in Round Rock since 1994. My husband and I have four children. My son, Spencer, is 35 years old. He is a firefighter in Ft. Worth, Texas. He is married and has 4 children which means I am a grandmother to four wonderful children - Mac, Lainey, Claire and Colby. My second son is Keaton. He is 27 years old and a graduate of Texas A & M and he is currently attending dental school at UTHSCSA. Keaton is martial artists. He has earned 4 World Champion titles in Taekwondo and is a Fourth Degree Black Belt. He also spent the summer volunteering at a center for children with special needs in Xi'an China. He particularly loved working with the children with Autism. My daughter is Shelby. She is 18 years old and is a Freshman at Harding University. We are adjusting to her being gone and of course we miss er very much!! My youngest son is Garrison. Garrison is 14 years old and is in the 8th grade at Walsh Middle School. Garrison was born in Yaroslavl, Russia. We are very proud of all of our children. I am also very fortunate to have my mother, my sister, my two brothers and their families living in the Austin area.
As a family, we love spending time on the weekends and during the summer at our lake house. It is a place where we relax, play a lot of games, and spend time with each other enjoying the water.
Our campus motto is "whatever it takes". We live the same motto in my class when working with our students and helping their families. If you ever need anything from me, please don't hesitate to ask. Remember "whatever it takes"!!!!!
Last, if you are a parent of one of my students - thank you for letting me have the opportunity to spend my day with your child.
