Welcome to the 2013 and 2014 school year! I hope that you had a relaxing and fun filled summer.  I hope that you are ready to skip into the new school year and ready to learn.  We will have an exciting and engaging year of learning many new concepts as well as reviewing and improving on the previous learned concepts.

  Hello and thanks for checking out my web page.

  A little about me:

I have now been living here in Texas for the start of my 17th year. This is the beginning of my 11th year teaching and my 8th year here at Azle Elementary(the Rock School).

  On July 16, 2013 my husband and I celebrated our 2nd Wedding Anniversary. Terry and I are proud parents to our 6 year old black lab, Bailey. 

 I am a college graduate from Slippery Rock University of PA (SRU).

Rocky, Pride of "The Rock" (SRU)


I LOVE my Pittsburgh Steelers,

 and my Pittsburgh Pirates.



 I teach Resource Math and Reading/Language Arts both our 5th and 6th Graders.

Make a "Splash" into In-School Tutoring right before your respective lunch periods. Come down and get some help with those homework problems that just have got you stumped. Please make sure to start your homework and be ready to show ALL work, so I can help you fix and find what went wrong.


If I can be of any assistance please feel free to call (817) 444-1312 and schedule an appointment, conference or you can email me. Thanks for all your help and support.
