After graduating from Texas Tech University in 1995, I taught freshman English at Borger High School. I was immediately struck by how easily students could fall behind their during their first year of high school. Finding new ways to help students has been my passion ever since.
When I moved to Brazoria County in 1998, I taught English Language Arts at Angleton Middle School East and Angleton Middle School. During those years, I learned from a talented team of teachers and principals about doing whatever it takes to help students succeed. I completed my master's degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Houston--Clear Lake and accepted my first administrator position in 2006 at Danbury High School, where I was able to lead the expansion of their credit recovery program and find new ways to support students.
I came back to Angleton ISD in 2010 as the principal of JJAEP and juvenile detention, where I kept learning. Since that time, I have served as principal of all of Angleton's alternative schools, including SAC, CATS, JJAEP, juvenile detention, ACE, and PACE. I love growing and learning with the students and staff on these campuses.
Outside of school, I love spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy reading, kayaking, traveling--and, to the occasional annoyance of my family, thinking about school. The opportunity to work as an educator is both an honor and a privilege, and I believe that most educators never truly stop thinking about their students and school.
