    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 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.
