Subjects Taught
3rd Grade


I grew up in Red Oak and graduated from Red Oak High School in 2002. While attending Red Oak, I was a member of the Hawkette drill team. My fondest memories of high school were performing at the Friday night football games and traveling to compete with the drill team.

After graduation, I attended Abilene Christian University. I was a member of Sigma Theta Chi. My family has a long list of ACU alumni so it felt like  home. I graduated from ACU in 2006 with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education.



After graduating from ACU, I taught at Farmers Branch Elementary in Farmers Branch, TX. I taught 3rd grade for 4 years.

My family and I moved to Red Oak in the spring of 2010 where I became the 4th grade Science at ROE. I taught 4th grade for 4 years. I moved to 3rd grade at ROE.

I am the youngest of 3 children to Don and Beverly Jolly. My mom is the friendly librarian at ROE.

I married my husband, Shane, in December 2008. We had our first child, Lincoln, on September 29,2009. He is our cautious, funny, and adorable boy who loves Legos and baseball.

Our daughter, Lola, was born March 21, 2012. She is our crazy, very girly, and friendly girl who loves all animals and dance. 

As a family, we enjoy going camping especially in the mountains. We spend many evenings and weekends watching Lincoln play baseball.
