Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Decker Elementary. I am excited about returning to fourth grade, after teaching first and second grade for the past two years. I have 14 years of experience in teaching, all at Decker. I am committed to the students and parents of our learning community.  I have taught first, second, third, fourth and fifth grade, with the majority of my experience at fourth grade.

My educational journey includes a Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Studies from St. Edwards University and a Master's in Education from Texas State University. 

Reading is the critical component of all learning.  The habit of reading is so important - it allows your children to connect to the world as they read. It builds their background knowledge which supports all their future learning. Please ensure that your child reads every night. There will be homework every night which supports current learning in the classroom. It is important that students accept homework as a part of their responsibility as a student. I will support you in this effort by providing books for your child to read at home. 

Please feel free to contact me anytime you have questions or concerns. Our school number is (512)278-4150. My email address is
