Welcome to Freshman English at West High School!
I am so excited to finally be back at school after such an interesting spring/summer break!
Just a little about me...I grew up in Chalk Bluff. I graduated from Connally High School in 2002, attended Texas A&M until 2006, and then moved back home to teach. I spent three years at Connally Jr. High, then nine years at Connally High School before coming to West. I have taught every grade 8th-12th and every level from inclusion/intervention to AP Senior English. This will be my third year as the West High School Freshman English teacher, and I absolutely love it! I also work as a part-time adjunct consultant for Lead4ward LLC where I travel all over the state and assist English teachers in other districts. So, I'm also a teacher of teachers. I have been married to my wonderful husband, JJ, for 12 years, and both of my little boys, Bo and Jake, attend West Elementary School.
