As your student's English Language Arts and Reading teacher, my job is to help them communicate their big ideas with a larger audience in a way that will have an impact. Our theme for the year, "Words are Powerful," will show students that normal people have initiated change by writing powerful speeches, poems, essays, and books. Through words, we can make a difference.
I started my teaching career at Boyd in 2010 as the Technology Applications teacher. This is my sixth year teaching English. Prior to becoming a teacher, I spent six years as a newspaper reporter. I wrote news stories on a range of topics, from city council and school board meetings to feature stories on local heroes, for the Wise County Messenger and the Waxahachie Daily Light.
I am the proudest member of the Fightin' Texas Aggie Class of 2004 where I earned a degree in journalism. I spent my first three semesters of my college career playing volleyball at Frank Phillips College in Borger.
I married Daniel Bourgeois in 2005 and we have two children and two dogs. I enjoy reading, running, writing, watching movies with my family, hiking, and camping. I have a terrible coffee habit that I don't intend to break.
