I’m new to the TES family, and to living in Galveston, and I’m so excited to be here! I’ve been in childcare for about two years now, working in PK2. My hobbies are reading, studying history, watching movies, and walking around the Strand and the beach. I’m actively working on gaining an associate’s degree in Dental Hygiene.

I have over 12 years of experience in Early Childhood Education. Of those 12 years, 7 years have been spent in the Special  Education, Inclusion and Social Development environment. I am a BOI, and after moving away and starting our family, having two wonderful boys Colby and Tucker (both now in college), my husband and I have returned to the island where my heart belongs. I love being with kids, listening to the seagulls, and being with my dog Rudder.
