Subjects Taught


Bachelor of Arts 1989


I am beginning my 25th year of teaching, and this is my third year at Red Oak.  I'm very excited to be here, and I'm looking forward to meeting all of my students. Previously, I taught AP English III and English IV at Desoto High School where I also served as the Senior Sponsor.  Prior to that, I taught art at Castle Hills Elementary in San Antonio for 16 years. I began my teaching career in Balmorhea, Texas.


I grew up in a tiny town in West Texas called Robert Lee.  I've lived in Red Oak for 7 years, and I love it!  I have three sons named Elijah, Isaiah, and Zechariah. Elijah attends Texas A&M , Isaiah will begin his first year at Trinity University in San Antonio, and Zechariah will begin the 6th grade.   I have been married for 21 years to Michael.  He is currently working on his PhD at Dallas Theological Seminary.  We have three golden retrievers named General Sam Houston, Perseus, and Shiloh.  This will be my 25th year of teaching!
