Welcome to the Library.  I'm so happy to be starting my 9th year at Donald.  It is an awesome place to learn and grow.  I didn't have a love for reading until I got older but once I learned I could go anywhere I was "hooked on books."  If I do nothing else I hope that I can inspire a love of reading into each and every child that I touch.


I grew up in Mississippi and went to college in Alabama.  I moved to Texas in 1992 and started teaching 3rd grade in San Antonio.  I only lived there for a year before coming to Dallas and getting married, I then taught 3rd grade in Irving for 3 years.  In 1996 I had my one and only child Ross, and stayed home with him for 2 years. During this time I got my librarian certification and haven't looked back.  Best decision I ever made.  I taught at Camey Elementary in The Colony for 15 years.  I'm now an empty nester as my son is a private pilot and own a Drone business here in Dallas.  I live in Flower Mound with my sweet pet pig, Tallulah and Dewey the Bearded Dragon that usually lives in the library.  Hopefully Dewy can come back to the library soon!!!
