"If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales."
Words are my passion. As soon as I learned to write, I began filling spiral notebooks with stories. And as soon as I learned to read, I devoured books like the sweet treats they are. There is nothing I love more than inspiring others to find the book that will change their life. I have a special place in my heart for poetry and young adult literature. This love of words drove me to enter the field of education after graduating from Texas A&M University (gig 'em!). 2019 marks my 16th year as a teacher and my 14th year with Mustang Public Schools. Prior to teaching in public schools, I volunteered teaching English in a small village in Tanzania, Africa.
When my nose isn't in a book (which is a rare occasion), I enjoy traveling, cooking, and doing just about anything crafty. I spend my days with my husband, Justin (a Mustang graduate) and our two dogs, Sam and Luna.
