First Grade Teacher
I grew up in Stinnett, Texas and went to West Texas Elementary. This school holds a special place in my heart. I enjoy giving back to a community that helped me grow. I graduated in 2005 from West Texas High School.
I went to Texas Tech University where I was involved in many teacher organizations. I received my Bachelor's of Science in Early Childhood Education in 2008.
I teach first grade at West Texas Elementary.
I started my career at Borger ISD where I was a computer lab paraprofessional. My next year, I took a first grade job and absolutely loved that age group. I taught 1st grade in Borger for six years. The opportunity to come back to Stinnett came open and I accepted a job at PSP CISD where I stepped out of my comfort zone and taught 4th grade reading/ writing. Although I grew a lot that year, I sure missed my 1st grade babies. So I decided to move down and teach 1st grade again. I absolutely LOVE teaching students to read! This will be my 11th year teaching.
I have been married for 13 years to my husband Alton. We both went to school at PSP CISD and wanted to raise our children in this wonderful school district. We have 2 beautiful children Jamie, 11 and Kaitlynn, 9 that attend school at West Texas Schools.
