Who I Am:
I am a proud, born and raised Texan. No other state compares. I've been married to my husband for 21 years and we have an amazing 20 year old son and 17 year old daughter. We moved to the area 2 years ago to get back to our rural, small town roots.
After graduation, I attended Ricks College (Now Known as BYU-IDaho) in Rexburg, Idaho. While at Ricks, I changed my major twice and finally came to the conclusion that teaching was my passion. It was at Ricks College that I decided to be a Home Economics teacher. Because Ricks College was a junior college, I finished up there and headed back to Texas and enrolled at Tarleton State University.
While at Tarleton State University, I focused on my studies and worked part time at the Wal-Mart. I didn't have much time for clubs and organization but I managed to squeeze in joining the Student Programming Association and became a Texan Rep my junior and senior year.
I'm starting my 2nd year here at Community High School with 15 years experience. I love teaching Family and Consumer Science courses. I truly believe that to change our community and society, we need to start at home with our family relationships and responsibilities. As a Family and Consumer Sciences teacher, I am given the opportunity to help our future leaders improve their family and social relationships so that they can go out and be productive shining examples in their community and professional world. I look forward to working with students in my classes as well as in our Career and Technical Organization, Family, Career and Community Leaders of America. I'm thrilled to be in a district that supports its career and technical education courses and student organizations.
