Hi! Salutations / Portrait of mom by Agatha Lee
I grew up in Harlingen, TX, and I attended Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, TX, earning a degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Art. Drawn by the rolling hills and live music, I came to Austin in 1996. For 2 years, I worked between 2 Lutheran schools. After which, I moved to Vienna, Austria for one year, traveled about, and came back to Austin to continue my career in Art education. I was blessed to find a job as one of two full-time art teachers here at Bridge Point Elementary! I am now in my 18th year of teaching at BPE and extra blessed to be working with a wonderful team and alongside our other art teacher and my best friend, Mrs Smith!
Austin is where I met and married my husband Kenny. We have 2 beautiful daughters- Agatha is 14 yrs old and in 9th grade at Westlake High School, and Cadence is 7 yrs old and in 2nd grade here at BPE! We have 1 puppy, Lago, and 1 cat, Wilkins. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, yoga, paddle boarding, working on artsy house projects, drawing, crafting, thrift shopping, swimming, hiking, and reading.
