Bachelor degree in Information Systems & Quantitative studies Abilene Christian University
Welcome to my page! This year, I am teaching at PSHS and McMillen HS. I graduated from Abilene Christian University in 1990 then I pursued my career in the hotel industry field. After 20 years, I decided to change my career to become an American Sign Language teacher. My first language primary is ASL and my second language is English. It has always been my passion to teach sign language and share my life experiences. I was hired to teach at a private school for two years before I joined PISD in 2010. I'm proud to say this is my 11th year with PISD and I have been in Education for 13 years!
During the summer when not teaching, I am a co-chairperson for the Texas ASL educators. On July 19 - 21, we hosted a virtual workshop for ASL Teachers. We are so grateful to be able to do this and we hope to be back to face to face conference next summer. Our workshop was a huge success and still being able to share and collaborate ideas on what we can bring back to our ASL classroom. If you are interested to see what we do, feel free to check out the Texas ASL Educators website, www.texasasleducators.com. I also had the pleasure of visiting my family and went on a mini trip to Waco to visit the Magnolia for the first time.
I am beyond excited to be back in the classroom and looking forward to a great year! Thank you for allowing me to teach your child the beautiful language and the culture.
