After growing up in West Texas, I attended Texas A&M University and majored in education. I taught for 11 years in the Dallas area and then, because of my passion for books and reading, decided to become a librarian. I earned a Master’s of Library Science from the University of North Texas and have worked in school libraries ever since.
Currently, I am the librarian at Highland Park Middle School in Dallas. I returned to HPISD – the district where I taught for many years – five years ago. I have loved reconnecting with former colleagues and students; some of my 6th graders are now teaching alongside me!
I have been married to the most wonderful man in the world for over 25 years. He is a fellow Aggie and the funniest person I know. We enjoy watching sports, traveling, trying new restaurants, and spending time with friends & family.
We are huge animal lovers. We have two pugs, June & Olive, and a cat named Zelda. We also have two turtles, Jimmy & Beans.
