I am excited to be a part of Pleasanton High School. My goal is to ensure students have a functional understanding of reading and writing that will allow them to find success beyond their high school career.  I look forward to being a part of each student's life as an educator.  Together, we will make this a fantastic and successful year.

I am an alumni of Pleasanton High School, class of 1996, and a graduate of Texas Tech University, where I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology.
This will be my 7th year as a Special Education teacher.  I taught high school English in the Lewisville Independent School District, north of Dallas, for 5 years.  I also coached cheerleading for 2 of those years.  I returned to Atascosa County in 2005 and taught at Pleasanton Junior High.  
I resigned from teaching in 2006 and have spent the past 11 years focusing on my family.  I have 3 sons who attend school in Jourdanton as a high school freshman, 5th grader, and 4th grader. I am excited to be returning to teaching this year at Pleasanton High School.
