Advancement Via Individual Determination
I graduated cum laude from the University of North Texas with a BA in General Studies. My areas of focus were Biology, Psychology, and Sociology. I am a certified Generalist 4th-8th.
Before teaching AVID, I attended the University of North Texas Health Science Center in the Physician Assistant Master’s Program. However, I made the decision to leave the medical field as I felt lead and called to teach. I have been teaching at Alvarado Junior High since 2009 and was named the 2015 Secondary Teacher Of the District. While at AJH, I have taught 8th grade science for 8 years, was the Science Department Chair from 2014 to 2017, and have had the great opportunity to teach AVID since 2015. I thoroughly enjoy being instrumental in preparing and motivating my students to be enthusiastic scholars!
When I’m not teaching, I enjoy spending time fishing, swimming and traveling with my husband.
