Greetings. I am a native of Montana. I transplanted to Texas when I was 17 to attend Hardin-Simmons University. I earned a Bachelor of Education Degree with a major in Secondary Mathematics and minor in History. I began my teaching career at a middle school in Keller, TX, then was out of the classroom 14 years as a stay-at-home mom, and now in my 16th year with Abilene ISD. I taught at Cooper High School 13 years before transitioning to Madison Middle School. I have taught mathematics to every grade level from 6-12. My husband, of over 30 years, and I have 3 grown "boys" who all graduated from AISD, a daughter-in-law, and 2 granddaughters. We also have 5 rescue pets, two of which are pet therapy dogs.
