The 2019-2020 school year is the start of my 14th year in education and I am proud to serve as the Dean at Lantern Lane Elementary.
I received a Bachelor of Arts in English and an MBA from the University of Houston. I have also earned my Master in Educational Administration from Lamar University. I hold Texas teaching certificates in Generalist EC-4th Grade, Special Education, English as a Second Language, and Educational Administration.
Prior to becoming the Dean here at LLE, I taught 3rd and 4th grade (all content). I also served as an elementary Instructional Specialist supporting science.
Being a life-long learner is important to me so I engage in various professional development courses, book studies, and hands-on learning opportunities to stay current on best practices in education.
My goal as an educator is to create a stimulating learning environment that allows all students to access meaningful learning experiences and become equipped with skills for life.
