About Me:


I currently teach Theatre Arts and Digital and Personal Citizenship.  I went to school at the State University of New York at Potsdam College and completed my student teaching in England. I have been teaching for 22 years and just love everything about it. This is my first year in Lorena.  I've moved my family from North Carolina to Texas.  We are quickly falling in love with all this beautiful town has to offer.
