I’m a graduate of Breckenridge High School in Breckenridge, Texas. Through high school and immediately following, I attended Cisco Jr. College and McClennan Communtiy College for legal and secretarial studies. Several years later when I went back to school to become an educator, I attended Navarro College in Corsicana, Texas, for two years before I transferred to University of Texas in Tyler, Texas. I graduated in 1999 from the University of Texas in Tyler.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies.
My Texas certification areas include grades 1-8 self-contained, English, Reading, and ESL. I am also certified in Oklahoma for grades 1-8 Elementary Education and PK-12 ESL.
I am excited to become a Kennard Tiger this school year. I will be teaching 7th/8th grade English and reading, and 7th grade Texas History. I will also be head coach of the Softball program.
Last year I was a Lone Oak Buffalo where I taught 7th grade English. Across the years, I’ve taught every grade from kindergarten through 8th grade self-contained, English, reading, ESL, computer literacy, and Social Studies. However, the majority of my experiences have been at the middle school grades. I also have 5 years experience as varsity and JV volleyball and softball coach.
My family is definitely the most important part of my life. I have 3 children, two of which are grown and have blessed me with 3 grandbabies. My youngest will be attending Kennard with me this year.
