Welcome to Bear Country
I have been teaching since 1990. This will be my 18th year in MISD. I taught 8th grade ELA at MJHS for twelve years. My secondary English/history teaching degree was earned at West Texas State University. I did some graduate work at Texas Tech University in curriculum and instruction. I am additionally certified in ESL and reading and graduated with my masters in library science from Sam Houston State University. This will be my sixth year as a librarian and my fifth year as the lead librarian for MISD.
My son, Austin, is a junior at the University of Texas. We have two cats and huge piles of books at our house.
Reading is absolutely one of my favorite things to do, and I want to share my love of reading with the students and teachers of MJHS.
Check out my book blog here: MJHS Library Blog
I am looking forward to a great year!
