This will be my 6th year to teach in White Oak and my 23rd year in education. I’ve taught third and fifth grade in the public school. This year I’m especially excited as I’ll be embarking on a new journey – teaching 6th grade in the middle school.
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 24 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 six 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 an eleven-year-old daughter who will be in fifth 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 (Zoey) that we adopted five 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!
