This will be my 16th year to teach and I love teaching kindergarten! I graduated from White Oak High School in 1997 and went on to Kilgore Jr. College. I then attended Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos and finished up college at UT Tyler in 2003. I am a proud White Oak graduate ( K-12) and I’m so fortunate to be back home. I taught 2 years in 3rd grade, 5 years in 1st grade, and 1 year in 2nd. This is my eighth year in kindergarten and I can’t wait to start our new adventure! I love to teach and see all of their sweet faces light up when they learn something new. I have been married to my husband Tom for almost 14 years and we have a 12-year-old daughter, Karsyn. She will be starting 7th grade this year and she is so excited!
