Because of my father's occupation, my mother, sister, brother, and myself have traveled all over the central and east United States (living in at least six total). Although to many it may seem that teaching is my life, I am very proud of my wonderful husband and two black and white cats. Paul, the love of my life, is also an educator in HISD. Our two cats, Machiavelli and Dante, provide entertainment that cheer us up after a long day at work.

Some goals I have for the future are getting a Masters in reading specialization and curriculum. I love teaching, but I would also love to continue my education and learn how to develop better readers. I enjoy reading and I want my students to learn to appreciate it, too.
