Instructional Technology Specialist

My Family

I have two children. Ashlyne is in grad school at UT Arlington. Nick attends Tarleton state University. We have two dogs a schnauzer named Thor and a golden retriever named Cheyenne. My parents live in Minnesota along with my two brothers and their families. I grew up in North Dakota, but I've lived in several states. Texas has been my home since 1996.

College and Career

I have been teaching since 1996 when I graduated from Minnesota State University at Moorhead with a bachelors degree in elementary education. I also have my masters in education administration. I have taught 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th grades. I have taught in Irving ISD for 15 years and before that I taught in Corpus Christi, TX.

For Fun

I value family time and try to spend as much time with my busy children as I can. I spend my free time reading, cooking new recipes, scrapbooking, and watching baseball. We are a family who likes to travel when we have a chance. I have visited France, Puerto Rico and Canada, but my favorite vacations are to the great places in the United States.
