 I am the Art and PALS teacher for Lopez Middle School.  This will be my 26th year teaching art and my thirteenth year teaching the PALS class in the NEISD. I taught art in the Comal District for eleven years before taking a seven-year sabbatical to raise our two daughters. I am a graduate of Southwest Texas State University (Texas State) with a Bachelor of Science in Education. I hold certifications in Art all-level and General Education 1-8. I received several awards during my teaching career.  The awards I received are Teacher of the year for Lopez MS 2017-2018. Comal ISD, Teacher of the Year--1992-1993, Teacher of the month Comal ISD 1992 and Honorary lifetime PTA member 1999. You will find an article I wrote in the Arts and Activities magazine titled Jungle Batiks. I am a member of the Texas Art Educator Association. I have severed on several State committees.  I served as a consultant for the Texas Education Agency Fine Art -TEKS and on the Texas Education Agency State Textbook Committee. The teaching assignments and duties I hold on the Lopez campus are Department Chair Electives, Visual Arts Teacher, Peer Assistance Leaders (PALS) Teacher, Lead co-coordinator and the Web Page Coordinator 2018.

I enjoy spending time with my family.  My two daughters are both graduates of Reagan HS and alumni of Lopez MS.  Kenlynn is studying Wildlife Biology -Oregon State and Jamesynn (Jamie) is studying Business - UT Austin. I am an artist who quilts by hand and creates art using fibers.
