I am a native Texan who has returned back to teaching in Texas. I have taught physical education at Hoffman Estates High School in Illinois for eleven years and Special Education for three years. I have taught Health at Waltrip High School in Houston ISD for two years. I came to Fort Bend three years ago teaching health and physical education by way of Baines Middle School. Over the years, I have coached volleyball and track at all high school levels, my coaching has also included cross country track and bowling. I have a Masters of Arts in Interdisciplinary Instruction and Curriculum from National-Louis University. I have earned several accolades throughout my teaching career. I have been included in the Who’s Who In Teachers for two consecutive years, I have been named the most outstanding support staff award, and I have been a nominee for a Sallie Mae teacher award. I’m married, have 3 children and a grandson. I enjoy being outside and reading. I look forward to a great year of educating students. I am also looking forward to a great successful year in Panther athletics.
