Welcome to first grade!
I am so excited for this school year and to be at Cedar Creek. This will be my sixth year teaching and my first year at Cedar Creek. Although I am new to the school, I am very familiar with Eanes.
I moved with my family when I was seven from California to Austin in 1997. I went to Bridge Point Elementary, West Ridge Middle School, and graduated from Westlake High School in 2008. I then graduated from Texas Christian University in 2012 with a degree in Early Childhood Education, ESL specialty.
Since then, I have been bouncing all over Texas. I worked with 4th and 5th grade students in Fort Worth ISD as a STAAR mentor and Health teacher before heading to Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD in North Dallas to teach 1st grade for two years. My husband, Tanner, and I moved to Corpus Christi where I taught 2nd grade at Flour Bluff ISD for two years before finally making the move back to Austin this summer.
My husband and I were both raised here in Westlake and are happy to be back home close to family and friends. I feel very blessed to be here and am very excited to be your child's teacher this year.
A little more about myself:
-I have a Border Collie named Pepper and a cat named Duck
- I love to read, travel, and spend time with friends and family
- I try to go to all the TCU home football games (Go Frogs!)
- I love coke zero, twix, and jalapeño chips
- My favorite color is blue
-I have two sisters (one older and one younger) and a brother-in-law
-I love George Strait and any Texas country music
This will be a fun, hard-working, and creative learning environment. Get ready for a great year! I look forward to working with you all and thank you for your continuous support.
