About Me

Educational History:

I am an Amarillo native and graduate of Caprock High School.  

Staying close to home, and initially believing I couldn’t save the world if I was in a classroom, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology and social work, and worked as a licensed social worker for several years.  I was always drawn to the classroom however, and went back to get my teachign certifcation in 2008 when my son was born.  It turns out, there is a LOT that can be done in the classroom, one heart at a time.  I’m so glad I figured that out!  The classroom is where I’m meant to be!

Degrees and Certifications:

Bachelor of Science Psychology/Social Work: WTAMU 2003

Teaching Certification: WTAMU 2008

Professional Development:

I am certified in both general eduaction and special education.  I taught as an inclusion/resource teacher for my first five years as an educator and then moved to teach in a general education setting.  I love that I have the opportunity to work with children, period.  I have the opportunity to work with students of al backgrounds and abilities.  The really neat thing is that where some perceive a disability, one is really actually stronger in other abilities. 

Current Position:

I had the privilege of cutting my teeth as an educator in AISD at Western Plateau Elementary School.  I was there for 10 years of my education career.

I received a huge answered prayer in the spring of 2018 when I was hired to teach 5th grade at Bushland Middle School.  I have wanted to teach in BISD since my family moved out here in 2013.  I am thankful every day that I have a chance to pour baack into the community that is helping to shape my own children into incredible humans.  BISD is the BEST!
