Hello Hippo Nation!  I am excited to be entering my 10th year of teaching and my 8th year here at Hutto High School this fall.  I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with honors in 2011 and completed their UTeach program to earn my teaching certifcation in Science 8-12. I will be teaching Environmental Systems and AP Environmental Science (APES) this year.  When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband (who also teaches high school) and chasing after our three-year-old.
