This is my 5th year as a Lovejoy Leopard but my 17th year to teach. I stayed home 5 years to raise my boys! I have a BBS in Elem Education with a minor in Reading and an Early Childhood and ESL endorsement from Hardin Simmons University. I have been married for 21 years to my college sweetheart Blake. He is a minister at FBC Dallas. We have 2 boys that both play football. When I am not cheering them on from the stands, I love to garden, read and watch movies! Teaching is my passion. So much growth happens in 1st grade and I delight being apart of it.
