This is my 28th year teaching (all Art, all high school and all in Plano ISD), and this is my tenth year teaching at Plano Senior. I absolutely love being a part of this campus and all of its traditions. Go Cats!! Although rooted in tradition, every day is new and exciting...which is awesome! Sharing what I love doing (creating art) and watching my students grow artistically as well as individually is what I enjoy the most. Just can't beat it!! I can't imagine doing anything else day to day.
I grew up in the Dallas area, then went to Texas Tech (Wreck 'em!) for my undergraduate degree, earning a BFA in Visual Arts with K-12 Art Education Certification. After teaching a few years, I started working on my Masters degree and earned a MAT (Masters of Art in Teaching) in Aesthetics of Visual Studies from UT Dallas.
I am currently teaching Art III, AP 2D Art & Design and AP Drawing - I am soooo excited to see what amazing things our awesome artists create this year!! In addition to teaching, I am also the Department Chair for the PSHS Visual Arts Department.
