Even though I am a speech pathologist by trade, I’ll always be a teacher by heart. I have a passion for the education of children of military personnel as my father was in the Air Force and I was raised as a “military child.”
The Fort Sam Houston ISD Belief Statement, “We exist to serve the military child” holds special meaning for me and reflects my commitment to our community. In my own K - 12 educational experience I moved seven times and attended seven schools, four of those school experiences occurred in grades 9 to 12. It’s probably no surprise that I decided to stay in one place in college, earning both a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree from what is now called Texas State University.
Currently, I am the FSHISD Associate Superintendent. During my 32 years in this district, I’ve had the privilege of working in several roles to include special education teacher, elementary assistant principal and principal. I’m focused on student achievement, student and employee engagement, district culture, and leadership development. Most of my daily work centers around curriculum, instruction, assessment, special programs, district policies, and communications. I’m always learning and love to help people.
