      I have been teaching since 1990  This will be my 15th year in MISD.  I taught 8th grade ELA at MJHS for twelve years.  My secondary English/history teaching degree was earned at West Texas State University.  I did some graduate work at Texas Tech University in curriculum and instruction.  I am additionally certified in ESL and reading, and graduated with my masters in library science from Sam Houston State University. This will be my third year as a librarian.

       My son, Austin, is a junior this year.  We have two schnauzers, a cat, and huge piles of books at our house.

      Reading is absolutely one of my favorite things to do, and I want to share my love of reading with the students and teachers of MJHS. 


      I am looking forward to a great year!
