Welcome!

August9

Welcome to your senior year! I will be your English teacher. I am excited to be here at White Oak. Let me tell you a little about myself. I grew up in a very small town. I graduated from Texas A&M with a degree in English. I taught in Hallsville for several years before earning my MLS from the University of North Texas. For the last twelve years I have been a full time homemaker. Now that all three of my kids are in school, I am happy to be back in the English classroom.

Our classroom motto is:

Work hard; be kind.
