About Me

This is my 13th year at Wolfe City I.S.D. I always wanted to be a teacher due to my compassion for others. Everyone does not learn or understand at the same rate. I was determined to be "that" teacher to help struggling students. I enjoy being in the Kindergarten classroom. I love the sparkle in a child's eye when they learn something new or have an adventure. I taught 1st grade for 6 years, and 4 years teaching Dyslexia and Dysgraphia. With Reading Recovery training. Everything has come full circle to increase my love for struggling readers. I understand so much now about the joy in beginning reading and understand the struggles of the older student. I feel that each trial and error has made me a stronger ally for each student.

I grew up in Greenville, Texas and have made Wolfe City my hometown. I have lived here for 37 years with my husband Stanley. We have 4 children Shawn, Shane, Shannon and Adam.  All have graduated from Wolfe City I.S.D. Shannon loved Wolfe City so much that she came back and is teaching Kindergarten. It is amazing to watch your family learn, but it is really a blessing and honor to be able to teach your own grandchildren.  Stihl Cash is going to be in my class this year. I have taught 4 of my 12 grandchildren.
