About Me: This is my 20th year to teach school in Silsbee ISD. I grew up in Silsbee and graduated from Silsbee High School in 1992. I attended Lamar University where I earned my degree. When I began teaching, I taught 3rd-4th grade music at Read-Turrentine Elementary. After that, I moved to middle school and taught choir. I missed the elementary children and earned a certification in EC-4th grade. I have taught 1st grade ever since (11 years).
