    I am so excited to start my third year teaching at Ponder Elementary! As we begin our journey this year, I want to let you know a little about me.  I received my degree in Elementary Education from the University of North Texas. Go Mean Green Eagles! I was an Inclusion Teaching Assistant for Arlington ISD for 4 years before I became a stay-at-home mom. While I stayed at home, I worked with my children and branched out into my church to help with the Children's Ministry. There I worked with 4th graders during VBS, Children's Camp and every Sunday morning for 6 years. I am currently teaching 6th grade!

    On a personal note, I am a born and raised Texan. I love being with my family, reading, hiking, watching movies and crafting! I have been married for 14 years and have 2 incredible children, Adelaide and Levi. We have 2 dogs who keep us laughing with their goofy personalities. As a family, we love to play outside, go fishing, play board games, go for bike rides, and watch movies.
