Professional Background: I started my teaching career in San Antonio at Harlandale Middle School where I taught Physical Education and coached volleyball, basketball and track. I then moved to Knox Jr. High where I taught Physical Education and coached volleyball and basketball. After two years at Knox, I moved to Conroe High School and taught U.S. Government while also coaching freshmen girls basketball and J.V. track for six years. Feeling the push to enter administration, I took a position as Assistant Principal at New Caney Middle School for three years before working at Westfield High School in the 2001-02 school year. I then returned to Montgomery County and became a grade level principal at Willis High School for three years before opening TWHS Ninth Grade Campus in 2005 and moving to TWHS
Senior campus in 2010.
Personal Background: Growing up in the Texas hill country, I attended: Austin Schools, Burnet Consolidated Schools, and ultimately graduated from Westwood High School in the Round Rock ISD. Initially, I attended Southwest Texas State University (Texas State) for a year and a half before transferring the The University of Texas. I majored in Kinesiology and minored in Political Science. While at UT, I enjoyed competing with the Women's National Champion Powerlifting Team. I moved to the Houston area in 1990 to be closer to family along with a great opportunity to teach/coach at Knox Jr. High in the Conroe ISD. During my career as a teacher, coach, and administrator, I have truly enjoyed working with students and celebrating their successes while also finding ways for them to achieve academic success in
a school setting.
