    Family

    I have been married to my husband, Mike, for 38 years.  We have 3 adult children, Jennifer, Chris, and Sarah.  We also have 3 grandchildren, Mia, Jack, and Cash, and another one on the way! Mike and I were born and raised in Slidell, LA, just outside of New Orleans, but have called Texas our home since 1991.  

    Hobbies

    I love to run!  I started running over 35 years ago and it is my favorite thing to do.  Running brings me a sense of peace and well being and it is the one thing I love to do all by myself. I am the DE Smith running club coach and enjoy training our 4th and 5th grade students for the Fort Worth Cowtown.  I also enjoy spending time with my family.  We enjoy going to the lake, eating dinner out, going to the movies, and traveling.

    Education

    I attended Florida Avenue Elementary, Slidell Jr. High, and graduated from Slidell High School in 1973.  I attended Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, LA and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree.

    Teaching Experience

    I began my teaching career in 1978.  I have taught special education for 4 yrs, first grade for 13 yrs, 5th grade math for 15 yrs, and Physical Education for 7 yrs. This is my 26th year to teach at David E Smith Elementary.  I love the school and the community that brings us together.  I can't think of another place I would rather spend my days than with the beautiful children that attend school here!

     Physical Education Discipline Policy

    I firmly believe that life-long success depends on self-discipline.  The discipline policy that I have developed affords every student the opportunity to manage his or her own behavior.  Your child deserves the most positive educational climate possible for academic growth.

     

    Classroom Rules:

    1. Sit in assigned area quietly during instruction
    2. Follow directions
    3. Keep hands, feet, and objects to yourself
    4.     Stay in authorized areas
    5. Proper care and use of equipment
    6. Wear tennis shoes daily
    7.     Participate in class activities
    8.     Show good sportsmanship
    9.     Line up quickly and quietly

     

    Rewards:

    1. Most Valuable Player- One student will be chosen daily to ring

            the firebell for displaying good conduct, sportsmanship and

            teamwork.

            

    1. Team Player Chart-  The class that displays the best conduct,

            sportsmanship, and teamwork will receive a popsicle stick in their class

            pocket.  Once the class receives a total of 5 sticks, they will be given

            a free choice day to choose the game or activity for the following day.
