As a product of FBISD (Colony Bend ES, First colony MS, Clements HS), I am thrilled to be back for my 19th year in education. Upon graduating from Clements High School, I headed to Stephen F. Austin State University where I graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, emphasis in Reading and English, minoring in History. Ax 'Em JACKS! I then went on to earn my Master's degree in Education Administration from Lamar University.
After graduation, I accepted a position in Lamar Consolidated ISD where I taught fifth grade ELA and Social Studies for four years. Wanting a change, I came to SLMS as a seventh grade ELA teacher, but being a History lover, I was eager to move up to eighth grade U.S. History after two years in seventh grade.
Education is something that has been ever present in my life. My mother, a master teacher, retired from Fort Bend after 40 years in education. Having worked in the corporate world in college, I know it is not the place for me. I belong in the classroom, educating children. My job is not just to teach them American History, but to teach them about life, help them to see their potential and give them the tools to reach it.
