Experience in Education: My military career covered education and training with the USAF. I have experience with preschool, elementary, middle, and college level students. This is my first year with Plano ISD. I was employed as an Elementary School Counselor with Laveen School District, in Laveen, Arizona. There I serviced grade levels: PK-8th grade and split between two campuses.
Background: I was born and raised in Macon, Georgia (south of Atlanta, Georgia). My family is a military family stationed at Robins AFB, GA; Minot AFB, ND; and Luke AFB, AZ. Our family consists of my recently USAF retired husband of eight years, Torane and our two sons Kaden & Keon. We enjoy spending time with our family in Georgia, Texas, and Virginia.
Interests: During my free time, I normally will watch In the Heat of the Night, Law & Order, and Blackish. I love to read new books during the spring and summer breaks. On the weekends, it is common for me to transition into a self-taught photographer.
