This will be my 5th year to teach in White Oak and my 22st year in education. Wow! I taught third grade for two years in WO and am now in fifth grade for my third year. Fifth grade is where I started my teaching career in 1994; I love teaching fifth grade!
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 23 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.
My family moved from the DFW Metroplex five years ago to be back in East Texas where our parents reside. I taught fifth grade in Kilgore ISD for a year before coming to White Oak. We have a ten-year old daughter who will be in fourth grade at WO.
I love all animals and have a “zoo” in my home to prove it. I have two cats (Laney and Blizzard). We also have a Schnauzer (Zoe) that we adopted four summers ago. Our animals think they run the house (and at times, they probably do). I also love music, reading, gardening, and spending time with my family and friends.
I’m looking forward to a wonderful year together!
