I have been a Science Teacher in FBISD since 1998. I lived in a few awesome major cities before I made Houston, Texas my permanent home. I have 2 children, 1 bonus child and 1 grandchild. I have 4 little Dachshunds.


I have a few past times and passions that keep me busy. The first of them is ARTS: painting, sketching, graphic design and photography. My philosophy is that if you can see the "World" as it really is, then you can teach about anything in it. I have been involved in art since the age of 7. 


Passion number 2, but not second at all, is my involvement in animal rescue. I have been involved in animal rescue for many years. Had my heart broken OFTEN because I couldn't save them all. My favorite dog in the world is the Dachshund, a.k.a. the Wiener Dog. I have 4 Little Dachshunds, all special needs in one way or another.


I am a diehard ASTROS fan, plastered with the love of the YANKEES. During the summer, you will most likely find me at Minute Maid Park for games or events. I have memorabilia from the 50's to present, but not all proudly displayed yet. My favorite experiences involve scoping out the ballparks during practice. A lot of magic happens at that time, such as getting signatures and meeting the players. 


Last to be said.... As a teacher, I might not bring out every student's inner star. A star which shines so brightly that shades are necessary. But I can find something wonderful about each and everyone that sits in my class and help them define themselves in their own uniqueness.
