Hello! I am so excited to be teaching back at Rogers Middle School, as I taught 5th Grade ELAR from 2010-2014. This will be my first year teaching 7th Grade Texas History and 10th year teaching overall. I grew up in Southlake, Texas, where I graduated from Southlake Carroll High School with honors before attending the University of Tulsa on a soccer scholarship. I graduated from TU with a Bachelors in Elementary Education and a Minor in Coaching. I have always felt that teaching was a calling of mine and something that I was meant to do. I believe that every student has the ability to learn and that it is my role in my students lives to encourage, empower, and inspire all and to instill a love of learning. My husband, Dave, and I have lived in Oklahoma and Missouri the past four years as he fulfilled his college football coaching passion. With the birth of our first son, Paxton, in March, we decided to move closer to family in the DFW area. When I am not in my classroom, I enjoy spending time with family, watching football, running, and traveling any chance that we can get as a family.
I feel so blessed to be back in Prosper and I am amazed at the growth that the city and district have endured just in the last 5 years. I am so excited to share my passion for history and to teach and celebrate the rich history of our great state!
