Degrees and Certifications:
Gifted and Talented Specialist
Hello and Welcome! Let me introduce myself. Born and reared in scrub brush country South Texas along the Gulf Coast around the Corpus Christi area, gulf winds took me to College Station where I received undergraduate degrees in Agricultural Science and Interdisciplinary Studies, class of ‘2001. You guessed it, I’m an Aggie married to an Aggie. "Gig 'em, Aggies!" That wasn’t enough… I obtained a primary teaching degree in ‘03, and a Master of Science in Education in 2012. And I don’t plan to stop there! But it was early childhood education that made the real difference by instilling in me the desire to excel and achieve supporting the spirit of learning.
An Incarnate Word Academy alumni, class of ‘97, it was through a college preparatory education that I learned the importance of achievement, community service and personal accomplishment. I’ve been educating children and adults for fourteen years and counting. Working with children my goal is to create an atmosphere that allows students to be genuinely aware and curious; to do their personal best with every endeavor; to be humble and honest; to think with an open mind, logically, accurately, critically; and to develop personal talents. Simply put – kids come first!
Beyond educating others, parenting is my most important job. My husband Justin, an Aledo alumni class of ‘98, and I have two boys, "RV" Park and Macer "Moose", and 4-legged kids, Rebel and Huli. We live in Bearcat Country, in our humble abode fully equipped with a taco truck, some feathery guineas and silkies, and soon to be welcoming a mini donkey.
