I am starting my 7th year as a specialized support teacher in Tomball ISD! I am very excited to join THS this school year! I graduated from Texas State University in 2001 and began my career as a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist/Therapist in a psychiatric setting. I decided my passion was working with children and adolescents, so I went back to school to become a special education teacher. I have 15 years of experience teaching children with a variety of physical, social, intellectual, emotional, learning, and neurological needs. My hobbies include camping, hiking, taking pictures, reading, and watching movies. I have a 14-year-old daughter, a 12-year-old son, and a scruffy dog. I cannot wait to meet all of my students and help them to learn and grow!
