Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Chisholm Trial MS!!!

This will be my 24th year in education, I have spent 12 of those years in RRISD. Before becoming a counselor I was a science teacher and instructional coach. I am beginning my 2nd year at Chisholm Trail as a counselor and I am excited for the upcoming school year! I earned my Bachelor's degree at Texas A&M University and my Master's degree at Angelo State University. I have two children. One attends Sam Houston State University and the other is a sophomore at Georgetown HS. Outside of school I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with my family and friends.

I am glad to join the Cougar family this year as the new Registrar at Chisholm Trail. I am very excited to start off the school year and meet our students and their families.

I have worked in Public Education for 8 years, one yr as a Receptionist, four years as a Attendance Clerk and three years as a Registrar. I am honored to be joining this amazing team.

I am also a proud parent of three lovely children, German, Gabriela and Mauricio whom I share with my husband, Genaro. We are a very active family and enjoy playing volleyball and soccer together.

I look forward to an awesome school year here at Chisholm Trail Middle School.
