I graduated from Allen High School in 1981. I was a stay at home mom for 10 years, worked as support staff at Byng Schools for 16 years, and began my college career in 2007. I graduated from East Central University in 2010.

I began teaching at Byng Junior High in 2010 after working as support staff for 16 years. To date, I have been a member of the Byng Public Schools family for 23 years. This is my 3rd year in the 8th Language Arts classroom, and I have also taught 7th grade Reading and English 1.
Way back in 1983 I married Bruce Plunk, another Allen graduate turned teacher/coach. Following his coaching jobs, we made three career moves: Olney, Quinton, and Byng. We have two grown children, Allie and Clay. Both of our children are Byng graduates, and like my husband and myself, both of our children are educators. There is never a dull moment in our home partly due to 12 little paws – connected to the cutest dogs ever – running around everywhere.
In my spare time I enjoy reading, family game night, and spending time with friends. I teach a teen class at my Church, Bethel FWB in Allen, and I love getting to know kids. I look forward to spending a year with your child and opening doors to education that will be exciting for them to enter.
