Hello! I know this year will be a fun and exciting year for everyone. This is my 10th year in education, and my passion in life is to see your child succeed. With 3 years of leadership as an Instructional Coach with TISD and 7 years of classroom experience, I have the desire to provide all students with an excellent education.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development and Family Studies and a Master of Education degree in Elementary Education both from Texas Tech University. Last year I attended the Principal Preparation and Certification Program at Region 12 Education Service Center in Waco. I am dedicated to my career and helping all students and teachers become life-long learners.

My greatest strengths include inspiring and motivating others. I know first-hand the value and impact a strong leader can have. As a leader, I view myself as a positive presenter and I love to model, observe, and provide guidance for classroom teachers. I am also honored to have been selected by my Assistant Superintendant and Principal for the 2015 Temple ISD Leadership Training Cohort. I am eager to help staff members become a community of strong and successful leaders. Please email me at or call 254-215-6295 if you need anything.
