For some of you it is Welcome to Lockhart High School and for others it is Welcome Back! Whatever the case may be, Welcome! For me it is Welcome Back! This is my 4th year at LHS but my 10th year to teach. My family and I have lived in the Lockhart area for 8 years. Many people ask what brought us to Lockhart; my response is...my husband. He is one the band directors for Lockhart ISD. His name is Joseph Gannon. We have been married 17 years...woohoo!! We have 2 children that attend the schools here in Lockhart.
I am a city girl by heart but am slowly becoming a small town girl. I grew up in several of the major metropolitan cities in Texas; such as San Antonio, Houston, and lastly, Dallas. Southwest Texas State University became my alma mater in 1998. I taught 7th and 8th grade math in Leander ISD at Cedar Park Middle School for 5.5 years before I became a stay at home mom to our 2 children for 8 years. On top of my regular job at Cedar Park Middle School I worked evenings and weekends at Sylvan Learning Center. I had the opportunity to teach the little bitty pre-k kiddos all the way up through college aged adults during my time at Sylvan Learning Center. In 2012-2013, I worked part time as a math tutor at the Freshman Campus. I have enjoyed all my experiences working with students and teaching math. They have taught me so much. It is because of the students that I have learned lots of tools and ideas on how to get the concepts across to students.
I am excited about another year on this journey and adventure in life. I know I will enjoy the ride and grow that much more. I am glad to be taking this journey with you all. So, hop on and let's get this show on the road...let the journey begin!
