I am so excited to begin my fifth year at Taylor Middle School as Assistant Principal. Our students are some of the best in Texas! I'm proud to say that I look forward to coming to school each and every day to work with a great bunch of students, and an exceptional group of faculty and staff.

My postsecondary education began at Texas State (then, Southwest Texas State University), where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Geography with a minor in Earth Science. Later, I earned my Master of Education through Lamar University. I came to TMS from Lexington High School in Lexington, Texas, where I had a wonderful 16 year career as a Social Studies and Science teacher.

I am the proud mother of three exceptional children (of course, that's a mama speaking), but they do make me proud. I have two sons and a daughter, along with a beautiful, successful daughter-in-law and a son-in-law who is a loving dad to my one and only granddaughter.

For fun, my husband and I love to travel the back roads of Texas on our motorcycle. That's where you can find me most holidays and weekends. We love to spend time riding in the hill country and all the way to the coast. So, if you know any good places to ride, please let me know. We love Texas from the panhandle, all the way down to the Gulf of Mexico.

I want to thank all parents and guardians for allowing me the privilege of working with your children each day. If we work together as a team, we can move them toward success and a very exciting future.

Best Regards,
