I will be teaching first grade at Kennedy-Powell this year. I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Baylor University and am certified Early Childhood through Fourth Grade. I have additional certifications in English as a Second Langauge as well as Gifted and Talented Education. My entire teaching career has involved the instruction of young children in Temple at St. Francis Episcopal School or Temple ISD. I am passionate about first grade! I believe that student achievement is accelerated by the bond formed between school and home. I look forward to working with each family to foster student success.

My conference period is from 1:00-1:55 pm daily. If you would like to schedule a time for a conference, please email me at or call 254-215-6000.
