About Me:




I am a Composite Science, Math 4-8 , and Generic Special education certified teacher for the state of Texas. I have a degree from Baylor University and University of Texas.

 I h
ave completed my Master’s work at the University of Texas as of the Summer of 2010,  My research project involved me working on improving ultracapacitors.  Due to my research and my results I currently have a patent pending approval.  Furthermore if all data is verified, there is also a possible publication involved.  I have truly been blessed to have been able to work with a phenomenal group.  Dr. Bielawski and his team of graduate assistants welcomed me into the group and I had the best and most rewarding summer experience of my life.   UTeach has been a wonderful experience where I have re-evaluated my own learning style and have been able to make adjustments in my own class.


I love to be outdoors.  I love to go waterskiing, hiking, biking, blading, running, and anything else that is outdoors and is also active.  A few years ago, I ran my first 5K in Meridian, Texas.  As you can see I believe all  things are possible.  So never stop trying.  Also I like to ride my bike in bike rides across Texas.  Throughout the year I will be traveling to ride in bike rides.  On my wall in my room is a map with all the rides displayed. 


I also love to learn and believe that learning is a wonderful process what should never be feared but encouraged by all.  Life is too short to stop learning, and the world is an ever-changing place which we have a responsibility to learn and adapt to these changes by constantly challenging our brains to learn, process, and apply new knowledge.
