The 2023-2024 will mark my eleventh year as the Director of Bands here at Hodges Bend Middle School and my sixth year as Fine Arts/ Elective Department Head. I am also the TMEA Region 13 Middle School Region Band Coordinator. I graduated from Texas Christian University (TCU) with a Bachelors of Music Education. I started my teaching career in Santa Fe ISD (TX) for two years before heading to Pasadena ISD (TX) for nine years. I come from a musical family in which all four children were in Band or Choir. I have played a musical instrument for over 35 years, which includes my primary instrument, the trumpet. I am a member of Kappa Kappa Psi (Honorary Band Fraternity) and TMEA. I have two teenagers at home. I am an avid baseball fan, especially watching my son and the Chicago Cubs.
