I'm so excited to join the Owl family and look forward to an amazing year. This is my 22nd year teaching in multiple disciplines with all but 5 years being in private, college-prep schools. The other 5 were in Cypress-Fairbanks ISD. I've taught 6th - 12th Language Arts/English, including pre-AP & AP, Creative Writing, and business classes. Outside of the classroom I've served as a CollegeBoard Counselor, NHS Advisor, librarian, and various other positions.
Before teaching I graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in Business Management and Public Relations. I then worked in the Human Resources & Training/Development departments in the hospital industry. I loved the training element but wanted more family time - so teaching, here I come.
I have one son, Hunter, who is attending Blinn in College Station, and then Texas A&M in the spring. Hunter's passion is for clay/skeet shooting, in which I became very involved in by following him all over Texas. I love gardening, being out on the water, camping, spending time in West Texas, and of course, reading when I have time.
I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and having a great year.
