Welcome to Gifted and Talented Education at Northpointe Intermediate School. Do you have questions about Gifted Education and how to qualify? Please email me at
I look forward to working with your Gifted and Talented students this year.
Dear Parents of GT Students,
It is an honor to be the GT Specialist at Northpointe Intermediate! There is no better place to teach.
A little about me: I have taught in Leander ISD, Borger ISD, and La Porte ISD. This is my second year at Northpointe, and I couldn't be happier. I am married to the love of my life, and we have two sons. Both of our sons were identified as Gifted and Talented in Clear Creek ISD. We have been doing GT for a long time at our house! Our oldest son, Travis, just graduated Valedictorian from the University of Houston College of Architecture and has begun his career at Gensler Houston architectural firm. Our youngest son, Austin, is a junior this year at the University of Houston and is majoring in Digital Media. He is in the process of publishing his first book, which is a manual for a table top game system he has created.
My husband and I grew up in Austin and graduated from The University of Texas at Austin. I have my Bachelor of Science in Education and my Masters in Education. In addition to being a Texas certified GT Specialist, I am a certified Texas Reading Specialist, and a Texas ESL Specialist. I love to read and allow full access to my classroom library to my GT Students. I look forward to another wonderful year at NIS!
