I enter my sixth year at Quail Valley Middle School very excited for the opportunity to teach and encourage our students to become life-long learners, both on and off the playing fields. I am a graduate of Texas Southern University and later the University of North Texas. My journey as an educator began in Irving ISD and I later moved to the Houston ISD where I coached basketball, football, and track. I have also taught classes such as PE, karate, and team leadership. I am currently teaching 6,7, and 8th grade PE and coaching football, basketball and track. I strive to model an active lifestyle myself by participating in martial arts, tennis and golf to name a few. When I am not engaged in these hobbies, I love spending time reading or traveling with my beautiful family.
