Degrees and Certifications:
2017 Teacher of the Year
Harker Heights Elementary
15 Years of Experience
I was born and raised in Killeen, Texas. I attended all KISD schools, and graduated from C.E. Ellison High School. I received my bachelor’s degree from the University of Mary Hardin Baylor. This is my 15th year teaching with KISD, all at HHES.
I am married to my wonderful husband, Trever. I have two beautiful children. Kade will be in 4th grade this year and spends most of his time playing baseball, or tending to his 4-H projects. My princess, Emma, is 3 years old. She is starting dance this year and stays at home with her NeNee. I love spending time with my family.
My favorite thing about teaching is when light beams in my children’s eyes the moment they grasp a new concept, or have discovered a new way to solve a problem. I love when my previous students return to my classroom and share their successes and academic achievements with me. Again, I see light beaming in their eyes, and my heart is fulfilled.
