    About Me

    This past school year I finished my 6th year with GISD. It has been a crazy six years, but I love every day I get to spend with my students. When I am not lesson planning, preparing experiments, writing tests, or cleaning and organizing everything, I LOVE spending time outside hiking, kayaking, and trail running. I do a lot of traveling to local state parks and even other states to enjoy new adventures in the wild. I enjoy reading what my students read, so am always willing to pick up a book discussion with them over what they are reading. I am very involved in my church and serve on the Missions Committee. My life is pretty quiet outside of school, but I love and enjoy each and every moment!
