My Education Background:

Before coming to work for Hutto ISD, I taught at Coastal Academy Charter School in Oceanside, CA. I taught Kindergarten (1 year), 1st grade (6 years), and am now so excited to be starting my second year of teaching 2nd grade at Nadine Johnson! 2nd grade is a wonderful time full of creativity, imagination, reading, learning, and growing. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies and Minor in Dance from California State University San Marcos. In 2016 I also completed my Masters of Education in Instruction and Curriculum, with an emphasis in Reading. In addition to teaching in the classroom, I also taught ballet for over 10 years and danced for many, many years before then!

As a teacher I am incredibly passionate about teaching to the whole child and making sure that each child's learning experience is specifically tailored to the way they learn. I am also incredibly passionate about reading. If a child can read, the world is open to them...so read, read, read! 

About Me:

My husband (Eric), son (Mason), corgi (Stumpy), and myself moved to the Austin area from San Diego, CA in July of 2016. Despite being from the coast, I have never surfed and am more of a "sun" person than a "water" person. I LOVE spending my time with my family, being outside, reading, reading, and reading! I'm also a traveler and love exploring new places with my family and friends. On the weekends I often spend my time gardening, exploring, reading, and spending time with my family. I also love supporting my students, so if you would like me to watch a game, event, or recital, let me know! I will do what I can to make it!

My Favorites:

Star Wars, gardening, reading, hiking, lime sparkling water, COFFEE, baking, Jelly Belly jelly beans (sours are the best!), fun pens, and anything that sparkles!
