I was born in Fort Worth and raised in Springtown, where I attended school, Kindergarten through 12th grade. My family joined First Baptist Springtown when I was just 6 years old, and I was baptized there.
I am a graduate of Howard Payne University, where I played flute in the marching and concert band for four years. My degree was in Elementary Education, with an emphasis in English and Reading. I also met my husband, Stephen, while in the HPU band. Stephen plays the euphonium. Stephen and I were married in Fort Worth at Southcliff Baptist Church. We have one son, Michael, who is Junior at TCS.
Our family has attended Southcliff Baptist Church for 23 years. Stephen and I are active in the church orchestra, including performances for the Southcliff Singing Christmas Tree.
A few of my favorite things are fried pickles, Dr. Pepper, Texas Rangers baseball, and the movie, The Wizard of Oz. My family also enjoys participating with a Scottish reenactment group at Scarborough Fair in Waxahachie each spring.
God called me to teach while I was participating in our church youth choir’s mission trip to Colorado.
This will be my 19th year at Temple. This year's theme is "Always, Only, Jesus." How AWESOME! I'm so thankful for the Truth in God's Word that assures us of Who Jesus is. John 14:6 tells us that HE is the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE ! I am so excited to be teaching with Mrs. Morrison in 4th Grade again this year! She will teach Math and Science to our class, and I will teach all the other subjects, including English, Reading, and Texas History. I know God has a special year planned for us.
