Hello families. I am so blessed to be your child's kindergarten teacher here at Lake Pointe Academy. I have loved being an early childhood teacher for almost 30 years. I believe learning should be fun and engaging. I am so excited to be a Bluejay and teach in this beautiful school. As a kid I loved my Dad's cartoon bools. I had fun riding horses, swimming, and helping my mom bake. I have an Associates degree in Theater and a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. I also have a Masters degree in reading.
