I grew up in Pampa and have lived in the Texas Panhandle all my life. After graduating from West Texas State University in 1990, I began teaching at West Texas Elementary and have spent my entire career teaching Kindergarten. I have taught a total of 23 years, 21 at West Texas Elementary and 2 years at Spearman. I am extremely excited this year to have the opportunity to teach reading interventions to students in grades K-5. I truly have a passion for teaching students to enhance their reading skills and look forward to working with children this coming year.
