Welcome to Olson Elementary Kindergarten!  This is my 18th year in education.  I went to the University of Oklahoma and graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University. I have a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a specialization in Early Childhood.  I have previously taught 4th, 2nd, and 1st grades, but teaching Kindergarten is where my heart is. 
My husband, Jim, and I celebrated our four year anniversary in July.  We met at our 20 year high school reunion.  We just moved to Plano from Dallas over the summer, so I am looking forward to a much shorter commute. 
Some of my favorite things to do outside of school include shopping (I love fashion), eating out (especially Mexican food), going to movies, bowling, reading, watching sports, traveling, and spending time with my family. 
I look forward to a fabulous year in Kindergarten!
