    Teaching Philosophy:

    I strive to provide an inviting classroom for all learners, through a risk-free environment. Students are encouraged to take an active part in learning, where they are engaged in a variety of learning activities daily.

    I married my husband, Stan, in June 1996. He is a self employed Veterinarian and specializes in small animal surgery.  In his free time, he is a beekeeper and he has several active hives in the back of our property.  He is also an AGGIE!!!  We have been blessed with two wonderful children. J T graduated from Ponder High School last year and is currently employeed at Chick-Fil-A and will begin college at North Central Texas College in Corinth.  Our daughter, Ashley, is a freshman at Ponder High School this year.  She is a member of the Ponder Lion Marching band and plays the trumpet and the piano.  I have a large extended family who are very supportive to my teaching career.

    I enjoy attending church regularly, spending time with family and friends; going out to eat; Cricut crafts, and listening to music.
