My last name is pronounced La-BOO, but most of my students just call me Mrs. Boo (makes is much easier). I grew up in Longview and later met my husband, Mitchell, at Kilgore College. We’ve been married for 26 years. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of North Texas in Interdisciplinary Studies with a specialization in English. I love teaching and am certain that it’s my calling. I’m looking forward to being your writing teacher!
My family moved from the DFW Metroplex eight years ago to be back in East Texas where our families reside. I taught fifth grade in Kilgore ISD for a year before coming to White Oak. We have a thirteen-year-old daughter (I now have a teenager 😳)who will be in seventh grade.
I love all animals and have a “zoo” in my home to prove it. I have two cats we adopted (Laney and Blizzard). We also have a Schnauzer (Zoey) that we adopted seven summers ago. Our animals think they run the house (and at times, they probably do). I also love music, reading, yoga, gardening, and spending time with my family and friends. In my free time, I teach English online to Chinese-speaking children who live in Beijing. The more teaching, the better!
I’m looking forward to a wonderful year together!
