Welcome to BMS!
This is the beginning of my 25th year in education; the last 13 have been here at Burnet Middle School, in the ELA Department. I have taught preschool to high school seniors but find middle school to be the place for me. This year begins my new adventure as the school's Librarian. I have a passion for reading and writing and enjoy sharing that with students. I hope they leave me feeling encouraged and with a desire to be life long learners.
I am originally from Abilene, Texas, where I attended Wylie High School and Hardin-Simmons University. I have been married for 30 years and the mother of three boys. Our oldest son recently earned a bachelor's degree from Tarleton State University, where he also played football. He is married and will finish his Physician Assistant's degree in December, 2021. They have our first grandchild and live in Abilene. Our second son is a graduate of the University of Texas at Dallas. He got married this summer and is working in Dallas at a Brokerage Firm. Our youngest son is headed to UT Dallas this fall, majoring in Business and playing basketball.
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy playing the piano, reading and spending time with family. We are big sports fans and you can usually find me in the bleachers at various football fields or gyms!
I am looking forward to a great year! Happy Reading!
