I graduated from the University of South Alabama with an undergrad degree in History and International Studies. I also graduated with my Masters from South in English as a Second Language Education. 


I did my student teaching at O'Rourke before finishing up at Denton Middle School. I served as an interim sub as an ESL teacher at Hutchens, Gilliard, and Mertz Elementary School.


This is my fourth year as the ESL teacher at O'Rourke and I am thrilled to get to know all my students. I started at O'Rourke in January 2015 and I have loved meeting all the wonderful children through the years. I cannot wait to get started enriching the lives of my students in the ESL classroom and seeing their growth and progress in the 2017-2018 school year! 


Here are a couple of my favorite quotes about language and cultural awareness:

A  smile is a language everybody understands. - unknown author

Own only what you can always carry  with you: know languages, know countries, know people. Let your memory be your  travel bag. - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
