About Me

I am excited to work with our amazing students at Nolan Ryan Junior High and to be a part of your child's educational journey this year!

While this is my first year at Nolan Ryan JH, I am coming from right down the road at McNair Junior High, having been there since its opening in 2018. Prior to working at the junior high level, I taught in elementary. I began my Alvin ISD journey, teaching at Wilder Elementary, having taught first and fourth grades.

This is my tenth year in education and eighth year in Alvin ISD. Prior to teaching, I worked in corporate business management and healthcare.

I have earned my bachelors degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (Education), and my masters in Educational Management with Principal certification. I completed both programs at University of Houston-Clear Lake.

I am a firm believer that teachers and parents need to work together to build a partnership, and regular communication is the key to success! Please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. I am here to encourage, empower, and ensure that your child is encouraged daily, and supported to meet the achievements and goals, they striving to accomplish!
