Welcome to Willow Wood!
I am thrilled to be teaching English/Language Arts at Willow Wood Junior High. This will be my twelfth year in education. My first eight years were in Cypress-Fairbanks ISD teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th grade--not all at one time. For three years, I was the Reading Instructional Coach and Dyslexia Specialist at Oakcrest Intermediate School. I am extremely passionate about reading and writing, and my goal is to encourage your child to also develop a love of both so they become lifelong readers/writers.
From Texas A&M University, I have a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies with a minor in both English and history. Additionally, I earned a Masters in Education from the University of Texas at Arlington in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Literacy Studies. I have a wonderful husband who is still in Cy-Fair ISD working as a Campus Content Instructional Specialist for History. Together we have two wonderful children, Timothy (age 9) and Braeden (age 4).
My family is an avid watcher of all Chicago sports, especially the Cubs. Go Cubs, Go! Additionally, despite the struggles of the last several season, we also continue to follow Da Bears. This does not mean that I dislike the Astros/Texans.
I look forward to a wonderful year!
