I am honored and excited to teach Principles of Human Services. I will be teaching mornings at Thornton Middle School and afternoons at Baines Middle School. I opened the program at Baines and I am excited to do the same at Thornton. This is an 8th grade class for high school credit. It is a project based class. I love teaching this class and have many wonderful and exciting projects that the students will complete. I graduated from the University of Texas. I began my professional life as a buyer for Palais Royal. I have 2 children, a 32 year old son and a 29 year old daughter. Both my children got married last year, so now I am waiting on grandchildren!! This class provides students with valuable skills that they can and will use throughout their lifetime. Each day, I look forward to providing creative learning experiences that inspire students to imagine futures with great success.
