I am a first grade teacher at Partin Elementary. I graduated from Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, La, where I met my husband. We moved to Texas in 2000 and have three beautiful kids. Breanna and Braden are twins and Connor finished out our family in 2007. We lived in Blue Springs, MO for about 7 years and that is when I discovered my passion for teaching. Upon moving to Van Alstyne in 2018, I quickly started substitute teaching and landed my dream job of teaching first grade. I am so excited to be a part of this community and district. I have a great passion for loving kiddos!
