I graduated from Sanger High School in Sanger, Texas many years ago. Then I went on to college at Texas Woman’s University in Denton, Texas.
I obtained a Bachelor’s of Science degree at TWU and have an Elementary Education Certification. I received my ESL Certification last Spring.
This will be my fourth year to teach at Shive Elementary, but my second year in 5th grade.
I have been teaching for twenty-five years.. I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade. I have worked in many school districts across the state of Texas and my last school was in Frederick, Oklahoma before coming to Vernon ISD.
I have taught in a self-contained classroom in which I taught all subject areas, as well as, teaching only Reading, Writing, Social Studies, and Science.
I have a wonderful husband, Brett, who is a former Vernon Lion, and is a teacher, coach at Vernon High School. I have three children, Murphy 25, a graduate of Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas and who was married a year ago last August to our son-in-law, Jacob, Jobee 20, will be a junior at Midwestern State University to pursue a career in nursing, and B.T. 16, will be a junior at Vernon High School.
I love to read, go to the lake and beach, and just spend time with family and friends.
