I made San Antonio my home in 1990 upon graduating from Jarrell High School in Jarrell, Texas. I attended UTSA where I played basketball for the Lady Roadrunners and earned a B.S. in Kineseology. I began my teaching and coaching career in 1995 for Judson High School. I joined the North East family in 1996 when I accepted a position for assistant basketball coach and biology teacher at Churchill High School.
I have been teaching Science at Bush since 1999. In 2001 I was selected as a Frontiers in Physiology summer research teacher through the American Physiological Society. I spent 8 weeks working in a research laboratory experiencing true science. The experiences I received through this internship have greatly impacted my teaching strategies in the science classroom. I was honored to be selected by my colleagues in 2004 as Bush teacher of the year.
I am married and have two children and 2 dogs. I love spending time with my family camping, jogging, playing sports and watching college basketball. Over the summer, we spent time traveling to Minnesota where we enjoyed water skiing, playing gold, paddle boarding and my newest hobby, PICKELBALL. Cooking is a passion of mine and in my dream life I would love to host a cooking show.
I am looking forward to a very exciting year.
