I have been teaching for 7 years.  I have been at West Elementary for 3 years.  My first year here I taught 2nd grade math.  The past 2 years I have taught reading and math intervention classes for Kindergarten through fifth grade.  I am honored and blessed to be apart of the West Elementary team. 


I am married to Brandon Byrd.  We have 4 dogs, 1 cat and all the animals seem to make it to our home since Brandon is a veterinarian.  ha ha! I love teaching, hiking, and playing any sport.  I help coordinate the student led Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA).  I am so blessed to apart of such an amazing group.
