It has been my great joy and honor to serve as the Principal of MacArthur High School. It is a school I love because of the long history and great traditions, as well as the incredible family that is the MAC community.
I am a San Antonian; born, raised and educated. I grew up just south of downtown San Antonio near the King William area, now called Southtown. My father was a railroader, and my mother was a cook and later a stay at home mom. I am the youngest of 7 kids. I attended a small neighborhood elementary from first through eighth grade. I graduated with the last class from the original G.W. Brackenridge High School in 1974. I attended Trinity University from 1974 through 1978, where I received my B.A. degree. I received my M.S. degree in Psychology from Our Lady of the Lake University, and went on to become a Licensed Professional Counselor and Cetified Counselor Supervisor. I entered education as a teacher and counselor and later as principal in private school. I served as principal for 8 years. During that time I returned to Trinity University where I received my M.Ed. degree in educational administration. In 2006 I entered NEISD as an assistant principal at Roosevelt High School. In 2009 I was named principal at Driscoll Middle School. I made the move to MAC in 2011.
The MAC community reminds me so much of the community I grew up with at Brackenridge. I love the Brahma Pride, and the generations that have come through MAC and return with their children and grandchildren. I have had the privilege of seeing my Driscoll kids come through MAC. My first priority is always my kids. They are the reason I come back every year, and get up every morning. They are my joy as I see them each day and watch them in performance and competition. You will see me often, I hope. Know that I am not there because I must, but because I choose to do so. I thank you for entrusting us with your kids. As always, Go Brahmas!
