About Me:
I was born in Houston, Texas. I am the oldest of five children. I am married and have three children. I received my degrees from Texas A&M and Dallas Baptist University. I live in Southlake, Texas.
 
I have included little stories that I have written about the C.O.R.E. Values that our district feels so strongly about teaching your children.  Please click on the link and enjoy the value for the six weeks that your child(ren) are learning about!  I hope you like them!

C.O.R.E. VALUES
BISD has developed the Community of Respect Everywhere
values.  Each value is taught for a six weeks period.
First Six Weeks:  Responsibility
Second Six Weeks:  Empathy
Third Six Weeks: Kindness
Fourth Six Weeks:  Honesty
Fifth Six Weeks:  Acceptance
Sixth Six Weeks:  Courage
Each six weeks I will be presenting a lesson on the C.O.R.E. value with all grade levels at MCE.
