6th Grade Social Studies

Welcome to OakRun! I am beyond excited to be your 6th grade Social Studies teacher this school year. I have been a 6th grade teacher for 22 years and this will be my 21st year at ORMS. I received my degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Abilene Christian University in 1994. My family and I had the opportunity to move to New Braunfels in 1997 and we're so glad we did! We love the community and are thankful to have raised our children in such a wonderful place. I love teaching 6th grade and I look forward to working with each and every one of you this year. 

I love:

- to be with my family.

- to play with my grandchildren.

- my friends.

- to travel.

- to shop.

- New Braunfels Unicorns!

- Kentucky Wildcat Basketball!
