Hi! I am privileged to serve as a paraprofessional in the Special Education department.  What is a paraprofessional?  Good question! I assist and provide support to our very dedicated SPED staff.   My role is both in the sped office and as a "Job Coach" to some pretty incredible students.  I am very happy to be part of a professional and dedicated staff that serves our students with grace and style.  Every day here is unique, and we can't help but say "It's a great day to be a panther!"

  • Professional Experience:

    My career with Plano ISD began in 2000 when I was hired on as a CTA (Campus Technology Assistant).  Shortly after, I certified as a teacher (Tech Apps, Business and Secondary English).  My teaching career brought me from Schimelpfenig MS, to PESH, PISD Academy, Jasper HS and now back to PESH.  

    Best day of my career:

    When I motivated my students to design and create a music video of the entire student body of Plano East Sr High.  You can view the lip dub here. PESH lipdub


    2nd Best day of my career: The launch of Panther Perks with the special needs students and FOX 4 news did a feature story on us.  You can view that here

  • Treasures:

    When I hear back from former students or their parents about the positive impact their learning experience was.
