I am so happy to be teaching at CRCDS this year! I am a native Texan, born in Dallas, and I have one older brother. My mom was a teacher and I spent many hours in the classroom helping grade papers or switch bulletin boards! My dad is a retired Dallas firefighter/paramedic and I am always proud to say that. I grew up in DeSoto, TX and went to college at Texas A&M. I have degrees in Political Science and Elementary Education as well as a minor in Business Administration. I have three kids and one little Yorkie dog. While I was being a stay-at-home mom, two of my children went through the CRCDS program and thrived! I am so excited to be able to work with your sweet kids here and help them get ready for Kindergarten. I’m looking forward to a GREAT year!
