WELCOME BACK TO ANOTHER WONDERFUL YEAR AT LDMS!
I was born in Mt. Kisco, New York, and spent the first five years of my life growing up in Westwood, New Jersey. Due to my upbringing, I am a diehard Giants fan, through and through. Sorry, Cowboys fans! When I was five, my family moved to Texas and I've been a proud Texas girl ever since. I grew up in Plano, graduating from Plano Senior High School in 1989. I then moved to Denton to attend the University of North Texas and never left. I worked my way through college slowly, sitting out for a few years to work full time at a daycare center in Flower Mound. My hard work finally paid off, though, and I graduated from UNT in 1998. Lake Dallas Middle School was my first teaching job out of college and I loved it so much, I've never left! I've been with my wonderful husband, Trey, for 23 years. He is a very successful small business owner in Denton. We decided early on not to have any children, but our rambunctious Australian Shepherd, Mysdee, is our spoiled little baby!
ABOUT MY CLASS:
This year, we will focus on preparing for the reading and writing STAAR tests, as well as units covering poetry, fiction, non-fiction, drama, myths, grammar, and much more. If you ever need any extra help, I am available for tutorials every Thursday afternoon as well as Wednesday and Thursday mornings. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you. Go Falcons!
