I was born and raised in Texas (Dallas and Athens); I attended Tyler Junior College (TJC) where I earned my Associate Degree in General Studies. After TJC, I moved to Mississippi where I earned my Bachelor Degree in Biblical Studies (youth and children’s ministry) and met my wonderful husband (Jeffrey Tucker). After nine years of marriage, we have a smart and handsome boy, William, who also attends Fulton School. My family and I moved back to Texas for my husband’s job in early July of 2018. We have been blessed to find such a wonderful school to mentor my son’s growth as well as a positive and uplifting work atmosphere for myself. I am passionate about teaching and look forward to partnering with you to teach your whole child (academically, socially, and emotionally). After decades of working with children in many capacities, I was called to the classroom in 2014 where I worked for a nationally accredited parochial school for four school years. After moving to Texas, I worked one year at a private preschool to be close to my son and then was approached by Fulton where I have helped children build a strong academic foundation for going on four school years.
Many years in the classroom has helped me hone my teaching strategies into what they are now and they are as follows:
It is my mission and desire to teach the whole child by encouraging each student to reach their full potential by building character, fostering community with other students, and creating life long learners through exciting a passion for learning.
