Teaching, teenagers, trigonometry…I have a love and passion for them all!
A graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics, I am a Texas certified teacher in Mathematics and English. I enjoyed nine years as a Plano ISD high school mathematics teacher, teaching all levels of high school math courses. I obtained my Masters in Secondary Education from the University of North Texas. While teaching in Plano I was selected Jasper High School’s 2001 Teacher of the Year and a Plano ISD Excellence in Teaching Award Winner.

I left the public school classroom in 2002 with the seemingly exponential growth of my family – twins were born! Upon exiting the classroom I began tutoring privately where I enjoy working with students one on one as well as keeping up to date with current high school math curricula. In 2009 my husband and I surprised even ourselves with the decision to homeschool our four children. We continue to find homeschooling a wonderful journey and are so thankful for the opportunity to teach, enjoy, and grow with our elementary to high school aged children.
