  • Howdy, Dooley Dragons!  I am so excited to join the Dooley family as your new Assistant Principal!  

    My Plano ISD journey began as a student, attending Wells Elementary, Schimelpfenig Middle School, Jasper High School, and graduating from Plano Senior High School.  My mom was also a sub-school secretary at Plano West Senior High School from 2000-2020.  

    After receiving my undergraduate degree from the University of Oklahoma, I obtained my teaching certification and joined the Otto Middle School for their inauguration in 2010 as a Special Education teacher.   At Otto, I worked as a Strategist, Developmental (Life Skills) teacher, BASE/FOCUS teacher, and team leader.  In 2018, I transitioned to Murphy Middle School as their Special Education department chair and ACHIEVE teacher.  While I was at Murphy, I also earned my Masters degree from Western Governors University and achieved my principal certification.

    I hope my growth mindset, positivity, knowledge, professional experience, and life experience helps build upon the strongly developed culture at Dooley.

    Outside of school, my wife and I are proud parents of four "fur babies" - two 19-year-old cats (Sid and Nancy) and two pups (PB - a black lab/German Shepherd mix, and Koji - a Shiba Inu).  I also enjoy cooking, watching Dallas Mavericks basketball, taking road trips, accumulating house plants, and most recently - gardening.

    Thank you for being a part of, and for welcoming me to, your Dooley Family!  Let's have a great year!
