I have spent the majority of my life in the Arlington school district in one capacity or another! I attended Blanton Elementary, Carter Jr. High and Arlington High School. I began my career in the Arlington I.S.D. my Senior year in high school as a teaching assistant. After graduation from high school, I continued to work for six more years as a TA with handicapped students and struggling readers. During this time, I knew that teaching was my calling! From there, I attended Tarrant County College and Dallas Baptist University. In 2004, I graduated from DBU with my Bachelor’s Degree in Arts and Sciences.
My first teaching job began in 2005 at Atherton Elementary in First Grade. I am now in my thirteenth year as a teacher in which eleven have been here at Ashworth Elementary. I have had the pleasure of teaching Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade and Fourth Grade. I have been a Team Leader in the First and Fourth Grade. My certifications include grades PK-6th as well as teaching ESL, and GT students. In addition, I have had training in Dyslexia as this topic intrigues me. This year, I will be teaching Kindergarten!
I have been happily married to Dale for 21 years, we have two amazing children. Brandon is 17 and a senior. Kaila is eight years old and in 3rd grade. Dale is an Arlington Police Officer that patrols the south side of Arlington. When I’m not working; I enjoy going to church, watching soccer, traveling and spending time with my family and friends.
I have served on the Math, Science Fair, and Sunshine committees as well as the PTA.
