I recently moved to ATX from Washington, DC, where I taught 4th grade in Georgetown. Prior to entering the field of education, I dedicated my time to business, sales, and marketing roles, but nothing excited me like teaching does! I was born a southwestern girl in Scottsdale, Arizona; however, I have lived most of my life along the east coast in the cities of Boston, Washington, DC, and New York City. Despite all of my moving around, I have stayed true to my Boston roots, and am a huge Patriots fan! I have 2 older sisters and am also the proud aunt of twin 7-year-olds (with another little one coming this winter!). My boyfriend and I have a little black kitten named Reese who we love dearly :) When it comes to my favorite things, I love the sunshine and all outdoor activities, including running, hiking, biking, paddle boarding and swimming. I hope to do a half marathon this winter, and in the meantime, I can't wait to get to know the BPE community, and to explore all that Austin has to offer.
I am looking forward to learning and growing with you this year as we navigate fifth grade. I believe that communication is key, so please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org or schedule a conference between 8:00-8:40am M-W.
