I taught at Fairfield Elementary School from 2002-2010. While there I taught 1st grade for four years and 2nd grade for two years.
I taught 1st grade at Cayuga Elementary School from 1998-2002.
Prior to my formal teaching I was a Supervisor at Sheltering Arms Emergency Shelter and Assessment Center for Children ages birth to eighteen in Bryan, Texas. We were a shelter primarily for children removed from their homes in emergency situations by CPS. Our facility gathered medical, psychological, educational, etc. assessments while providing loving and safe care for these children and youth as they went through an extremely traumatic experience in their young lives. In addition to supervisory and child care duties, I assisted teaching in a K-12th grade classroom for students unable to be in a public school setting.
I have been married to John Thorne since 1995 and we have 3 beautiful children; Taylor, Alyssa, and Will. John is a Texas Game Warden K-9 unit and often visits our classroom and offers fun, eductaional programs for our students. Taylor graduated from Fairfield HS in 2014. Alyssa is in 9th grade at FJH and Will is in 5th grade here at FIS.
I love movies, reading, and painting. However, my favorite past time is spending time with my family and friends!
