Assistant

I have been an assistant for 12 years. I started at Lincoln Elementary,  then transferred to Twin Lakes Elementary when it opened. I was at Twin Lakes for 10 years, prior to joining the Prairie View team. Before I worked for the district, I was a licensed daycare provider for 12 years. I started my daycare when my oldest was three months old and closed that chapter of my life when my youngest was in 1st Grade. I have four adult children and one grandson, who just turned four.
 
I love spending time with animals. I owned five horses for about 15 years. Now that I've moved into the city I have a puppy. I was hoping to train to her to be a therapy dog, but due to her anxieties I doubt that will happen... I will keep on training....

I am a photographer outside of working at the school. It was a hobby that turned into so much more, and I love it. Our family is very outdoorsy - we hunt (yes all my girls hunt too) and we basically have a zoo - three dogs, two cats, and a horse. We are a busy family (again 3 girls how can we not be). :)
