I am a 1987 graduate of Malakoff High School and a 1995 graduate of East Texas State University.
My degree is in Interdiscliplinary Studies with a focus on Reading and childhood literacy.
After beginning my career by teaching at Vanston Middle school in Mesquite I moved back to Malakoff with my family and began teaching at Malakoff Middle School in August of 2000. I have taught 6th through 8th grade Reading and English during my career. I am currently the 8th grade ELA teacher at MMS.
In my spare time (which I have more of now that I have an empty nest) I enjoy reading mystery novels, watching movies and cooking. When the opportunity presents itself I spend as much time as I can with my grandchildren who live locally and sometimes make an occasional road trip to either Stephenville (Go Texans!) or College Station (Gig ‘Em!) to visit my girls. They are usually happy to see me coming because I often take treats and whatever money I can spare!!
