I was born in San Antonio, Texas, but a short 3 years later we were off for Alabama. I was lucky, my mom married a pilot in the Air Force and I was able to grow up as an Air Force Brat. I spent most of my early years overseas in Japan, the Philippines, and England. I also had the opportunity to land in quite a few states along the way: Virginia, Alabama, Texas, Alaska, Nevada, Arizona, and a few others. In 1990 my dad decided to retire from the Air Force and pursue a career with United Airlines, so we settled in San Antonio, close to my mom’s hometown of Laredo, and have been here ever since.
In 1994 I graduated from Judson high school and left for College Station and Texas A & M. After 4 years, I graduated from Texas A & M in 1998. WHOOP! This is my 17th year teaching and I have loved every minute of it. I spent 10 years teaching first grade, but am thrilled to now be teaching GT. I love the daily challenge my students provide.
I am blessed with two beautiful girls, Avery Clare and Cameron Seyler. Avery is a soccer-loving (well, all sports really) 11 year old. She just started navigating the world of Middle School, yikes! Sister Seyler is a creative, silly 8 year old enjoying the 3rd grade. school. They are such fun! We are also blessed with baby brother Griffin Maxwell. He is a rambunctious boy who loves to tackle his sisters! He is quite the performer, always making us laugh. He loves to go play band with his daddy and has recently become sports-obsessed! He started Kindergarten this year and is thrilled.
When I am not working I enjoy reading, playing with my kids and spending time with all of my family. We are a large raucous group and spend most weekends barbecuing and visiting.
