Welcome to 2nd Grade! I’m very excited to be teaching for my third year at St. Rita. Prior to coming here, I taught 3rd grade for four years at Holy Family Catholic School. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in English from San Diego State University. My love for teaching began during college as a surf instructor in San Diego, California. I am a native Texan and returned after college. Following student teaching at Holy Trinity in Dallas, I began teaching upper elementary English at Holy Family. Eventually, I began teaching all subjects in 3rd grade. I am thrilled that my teaching journey has led me to teach 2nd grade at St. Rita! My goal is to provide my students with a strong educational foundation deeply rooted in the Catholic faith and to develop a genuine love of learning that will last a lifetime.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I am married with a beautiful daughter, Kathryn, who was born in March 2016. My family lives in North Dallas with our dog Rocky, a black Labrador Retriever. My husband went to Texas Tech and we are avid Tech fans. My hope is for your child to leave 2nd grade with the confidence and knowledge to succeed in 3rd grade and beyond. I look forward to a GREAT year!
