6th Grade Language Arts (ELA)

In the classroom...

I absolutely love teaching middle school! Of course, sixth graders are my favorite! I first entered the doors of Tidwell as a parent myself 5 years ago and immediately felt at home. I am blessed to be a part of such a wonderful school and community. I believe every student has the capability of learning and being successful. I teach with a variety of learning styles in mind and see every child as a gift. I have a relaxed, fun teaching style with a goal to help all students love learning! My two rules are: work hard and be kind!

A little about me...

When I am not in the classroom with my amazing students I love spending time with my family. I have been married since 2000 to my husband Jeremy and we have three wonderful kids. Most of our time is consumed with watching them participate in their sports such as: gymnastics, baseball, basketball and football. If we ever have time away from the field or gym you can find us on the lake. We enjoy wakeboarding and boating as a family.

Education and Professional Background

I graduated from the University of North Texas in 2002 with a Bachelor's in Interdisciplinary Studies with a specialization in Reading. I began my teaching career in Keller ISD in First Grade. I was also a Children's Minister for a local church during several years when I stepped out of the classroom while my children were younger.
