I received my BS in Curriculum and Instruction from Texas A&M in 1986.  My 3 children and I have enjoyed being a part of the Montgomery community since 2007.  I began teaching in Montgomery in 2010.   We are a multigenerational Aggie family so in my spare time I enjoy watching Fightin' Texas Aggie football and just spending time with my kids and family.  In recent years, I have begun running....for the fun of it, for the feeling of accomplishing a certain distance, and for the shirts!
