Welcome to Willow Wood!
I am thrilled to be teaching English/Language Arts at Willow Wood Junior High. This will be my thirteenth 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 literacy, and my goal is to encourage your child to develop a love of reading and writing so they become lifelong learners.
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. My husband works in Cy-Fair ISD as a history teacher and football coach. Together we have two wonderful children, Timothy (age 10) and Braeden (age 5).
I look forward to a wonderful year! If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please feel free to email me.
