About Me:

I am originally from New Jersey and have lived all over the country. I have been a Special Education teacher for six years and this will be my third year at Lewisville High School. I'm so grateful to be a part of the Fighting Farmer Family! I love music, hiking, yoga, hula hooping, reading, and watching movies. I am all about growth mindset and the importance of growth and change. I always try to encourage my students, friends, and family to try new things, step out of their comfort zone, and make lots of mistakes because that is how the best learning occurs. Let's work hard and have fun!
