I began my teaching career in Northern California working with a gifted mentor and staff at Mission San Jose High School in Fremont. After five years, I married the love of my life and moved to

South Africa where I had spent my childhood.  In Africa,  I taught  English, Religious Studies, and served as one of two counselors at our local government day-boarding school.

Upon returning to the United States several years later with my husband in 1999, I joined the PISD community beginning my teaching at Jasper High School. After fourteen years at Jasper High School, I transferred to Plano West.

In addition to my family at Plano West, my husband and I delight in our two children, both married to terriffic people, and our four energetic grandchildren.
