My entire family is a product of NEISD. I graduated from Lee High School, my husband graduated from MacArthur High School, both my daughter and son graduated from ISA. My husband teaches math at Reagan High School. My daughter graduated from the University of Texas at Austin and is currently assistant editor at DC Comics in Los Angeles, California. My son attends Parson's School of Design in New York. He is studying fashion design.
Creativity is as important to human evolution as literacy. Our progress is determined by our ability to solve problems, innovate, and improve our condition. I do not care whether or not my students are exceptional technical artists; I want them to exercise their brains, experiment, theorize, think, and improve. I want them to have an agile mind. I want every aspect of their existence to get better, to improve on what came before.
I have recently earned my Administrative certificate and I hope to have the opportunity to further shape schools and students for the benefit of our community and society.
