Social Studies

I have taught in TISD for the last 11 years and this is my second year at Creekside Park Junior High. I am teaching American History and am very excited to start 2017-18 school year.
 
I earned a BA in History and a M.Ed from Texas A & M University. I am certified to teach Social Studies grades 4-12, and hold both ESL and GT certifications. I am passionate about History and its connection to our present and future, and enjoy teaching middle school students.  I count it as a privilege to be a part of their junior high experience.
 
My husband and I are originally from Little Rock, AR, but have lived in Texas for over 30 years, and have three grown children raised in Tomball.
