Home

Hello there, everyone!  I am originally from San Diego, CA, born and raised.  I graduated from University of California, Davis (UCD) in 2005.

This is my 3rd year at Northpointe and my FIRST year teaching 6th Grade Math.  I am so excited to share my love of math with my students at NIS.  I worked in NIS' special education department for my first two years at our school, and made the switch to math this year. 

I have been married to my awesome husband for 13 years and we have a beautiful 7-year-old daughter.  My family and I moved to Houston in 2014 and we absolutely love living here. We are HUGE travel-people, always up for a vacation and a fun adventure.  Our family tries to go on a big international trip and a couple road-trips each year.  I love photography and am always on the lookout for a good photo-opp spot.  I have been a Type-1 Diabetic for over 30 years and have been working with T1D kids and their families for the past 20 years.  

I have high expectations for my students. I want students to be respectful, come to class prepared, take ownership of their learning and do their BEST!

NOTHING LESS THAN YOUR HIGHEST AND YOUR BEST!!!
