Hello Rushing Family! I am so excited to begin my journey at Rushing Middle School! I will be starting my 14th year in PISD in the fall, working at Rucker, Rogers, Reynolds, Baker, and now Rushing Middle School!
After completing my undergraduate studies at the University of California, Riverside, I began teaching in 1991 in San Bernardino, California, as a 6th grade teacher. Since then, I have taught elementary, middle and high school, learning something new at every level. In 1998 I completed my masters degree in history at West Virginia University. I returned to teaching as quickly as I could and have never looked back!
No matter what grade level or subject I taught, it was and is my unwavering belief that ALL students can learn at high levels and enjoy amazing success! It is one of my single biggest joys to watch students explore, grow and create as they ready themselves for the challenges ahead. After nearly 30 years as an educator, I still get just as excited about the first day of school as I did walking into that classroom in San Bernardino, California in 1991.
My husband and I have been married for 23 years and have a daughter, Madeline, who graduated from PHS in 2019 after attending Prosper ISD schools K-12. After finishing her first year studying music at The University of Texas at Austin, she is starting a new journey at The University of North Texas in their music school. When we arrived in Prosper in 2005, my husband saw a bumper sticker that read "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" He said that about sums us up! We could not have chosen a better place to raise and educate our daughter.
