I have been teaching English at Willis High School since 2001 and I love life as a Wildkat! I am a graduate of Texas Wesleyan University with a double major degree in English and History. My master's work is in Curriculum & Instruction at Sam Houston State University. During my time here, I have served as the student council faculty adviser, the 9th grade team leader, faculty adviser for Pit-Kru and the faculty sponsor for the class of 2011 and 2014. I am currently the faculty co-sponsor for the Class of 2017. For the past 5 years, I have been the pronouncer for the Houston PBS Spelling Bee and the Region III Final Bee in Victoria, Texas.
My educational goals for my students are that each one will become a more proficient reader, a better writer and be able to interpret quality literature so they can apply what they have learned. Ours is a "flipped" classroom, so technology use is at the forefront of all our creativity.
On Friday nights in the fall, I am privileged to serve as "The Voice of the Wildkats" at all WHS home football games. Go Kats!
