I grew up as a cotton farmer's daughter in the small town of Garden City, Texas. I love being outside and can be considered a country girl! I just graduated from Texas Tech University with a Bachelor of Science in University Studies. I completed an online alternative certification program, focusing on 4th-8th math/science as well as EC-12 Technology. This is my first year as a teacher and I could not be more excited to become a member of the New Deal Lion Middle School family. I look forward to a great year!
