I was born and raised outside of Chicago, Illinois (Go Bears!).  I moved to Texas after graduating college to work as a zookeeper at the Fort Worth Zoo.  I left working at the zoo full-time in 2008 to become a teacher but I continue to work in the Animal Outreach department part-time.  I love sharing my animal experiences with the students and bringing the Outreach animals from the zoo to our school every year!  My husband and I live in Fort Worth and we have a beautiful, energetic four year old daughter.

This is my 12th year teaching and my 12th year at MLP!  I love this school and cannot imagine teaching anywhere else!  I have taught 5th grade Science every year and have also have experience teaching Social Studies, Reading, and Writing.

I teach because these children are the future.  They will be the ones making the decisions in this world before too long.  I want to prepare them with enough scientific knowledge and appreciation to make informed judgements to keep this country and this planet going.
