About me ...

San Antonio has been my home since birth. I attended Northside ISD schools from elementary through high school, graduating from Taft HS in 1996 (go Raiders!).  High school is where I first thought about becoming a teacher, thanks to a few incredible ones I had.  From there, I went to the University of Texas at San Antonio (go Roadrunners!), graduating in 2001 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English.

I started working in the legel field while in college and continued that work after graduation, thinking I would make it a career.  But the dream of teaching stayed with me.  After nine years of working with attorneys, I decided it was time to move on to the dream ...

For my first nine years of teaching, I worked at Southwest High School (Southwest ISD), where I taught a variety of ESL courses in addition to freshman and sophomore English.  The 2019-20 school year begins my third here in NEISD - my second year here at DATA as the 8th grade English Language Arts and Reading teacher!  

Outside of school, my life includes a wonderful husband (NEISD Churchill graduate, class of '91) and three fabulous children.  I enjoy cooking, watching movies, and spending time with my family.
