My background in education started immediately after senior graduation when I began working at my high school alma mater as a teaching assistant. It was then I that I knew my desire was to pursue a path of professional education. I am blessed to say that I have been involved in the field of education ever since, serving in a variety of capacities at both the middle and high school level. My roles have included Special Education Teacher, Behavior Specialist, Post-Secondary Transition Specialist, English I/II Teacher, Curriculum Writer, Social-Emotional Learning Campus Coordinator, and Special Education Department Chair/ARD Facilitator. I have been a part of Plano ISD since 2008, and a proud McMillen Lion since the Fall of 2012.
I believe there is a true power in connecting, communicating, and building rapport with all those involved in the learning process. I value the insight of our students, families, and teachers and encourage open lines of communication at all times.
Aside from my days at McMillen, I thoroughly enjoy being "mom" to one amazing son. I take joy in co-coaching his baseball team, cooking family meals (especially hosting gatherings) and tackling restorative craft projects with vintage furniture.
