A bit about me ~

This is my 26th year as an educator, with 20 years of that time spent in 2nd and 3rd grade classrooms and 6 of those years spent as an Assistant Principal. (I rushed back into the classroom as soon as I could!)

My own children were Sally K. Ride Challengers, and I have been blessed to serve here for 11 school years. It is definitely my home away from home.

My husband, David, has served as Associate Principal at College Park since it's doors opened 11 years ago.  My son, Aaron, is beginning his second year of college at Lone Star, and my daughter, Samantha, is beginning her third year of college at Texas State University in San Marcos.  The time between this precious stage at SKR and college is swift...

I truly love being a teacher and look forward to my time with your child this school year!  :0)


THANK YOU to Juliee Sparks for stepping up to be our Homeroom Mom for the remainder of the year!  :0)

Graded work and important forms from the office will be sent home on Tuesdays in your child's daily folder.  Please be certain to return the folder each day, and  please initial your child's stars each evening.

Note from the Nurse
Dear Parents,

Many school children have health-related dietary restrictions, including peanut and/or tree nut allergies.  For these students, strict avoidance is the only way to prevent a severe, life-threatening allergic reaction. We are asking your assistance in providing a safe learning environment for all students.
We respectfully ask that peanut or nut containing products be avoided in the classroom. This includes foods labeled “may be processed on equipment that processes nuts”. For some students, any exposure, even on skin contact, can cause a severe reaction.  If your child has eaten any type of nut prior to coming to school, please assist him/her with thorough hand washing before coming to school.
The cafeteria has designated peanut-free areas so lunch time food selections do not require restrictions.
Thank you so much for your help in this matter. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at anytime.
