I am a native Houstonian who once was the lead high school sports reporter for the Houston Chronicle. I have published a book and have had my poetry published. I have been a copy editor for an oil and gas news company. I became an educator to help all students have access to a quality education. I believe in equipping students with the communication skills they need to become positive contributors to a global society. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Communication from Trinity University and my Master of Education from the University of North Texas. I am currently studying at Rice University to become dual credit certified. This is my 15th year of teaching. I have also coached boys basketball and girls basketball. I have been an AVID teacher and a newspaper teacher as well as a UIL Journalism coach. All I want to do is help the next generation have a chance to succeed beyond its wildest imagination. Let's SOAR!
