This is my 11th year teaching at Richardson High School. Prior to teaching, I experienced TWO careers in the corporate world. My first was in restaurant management for four years after college. The second was in banking and finance which included owning my own mortgage company. For me, teaching was a calling that unexpectedly announced itself about the time I turned 40. My oldest son graduated in 2020 from Wylie High School and now serves in the United States Navy. My daughter, Ella, just graduated from RHS and is a student athlete at Lesley University in Boston. My stepson, Josh, is a SENIOR EAGLE this fall at Richardson High School. In addition to teaching English 2, I sponsor the writing club called Writers' Guild which meets every Wednesday after school in my room - D273.
