I began teaching at Hempstead Elementary in August 2017. I am beginning my fourth year in Hempstead ISD. I teach fifth grade Reading language arts and social studies.
I began my teaching career in fourth grade teaching all subjects in January 2000. I moved from there to fifth grade science. Later, I taught sixth grade English language arts and reading for a brief couple of years, but my heart is with elementary. I love teaching, and I love the people with whom I work.
I am the mother of five adult children and eleven grandchildren. I have two grandsons who live in Burbank, California. They are pursuing their careers as actors. They have been on episodes of the television drama Code Black, Lethal Weapon, and This is Us. The oldest, Aiden, has appeared in episodes of S.W.A.T and NCIS: Las Angeles. Jonny, his little brother, is in a movie with Keke Palmer and Jay Pharoah called Two MInutes of Fame. I love spending time with my children and grandchildren. It isn’t a party until all of my children get together.
I like to read for enjoyment in my spare time. If it is interesting, I will read it. Literary or informational – it does not really matter if it peaks my interest. I also enjoy sewing.
