Aloha! What excites me most about education is the opportunity to continuously engage in learning. After working many years in the private and federal sector, I made the decision to become a teacher and serve the students and parents of Killeen Independent School District (KISD). I have been teaching, mentoring, and coaching individuals for 23 years. I hold a doctorate from Capella University, master’s from Tarleton State University-Central Texas, and bachelor’s from the University of South Carolina.
Within KISD, I have relished teaching a variety of subjects including reading, writing, mathematics, history, and science. Writing is my favorite! I am, currently, part of the Texas A&M University-Central Texas faculty in Gatesville and a consulting trainer for the Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training on Fort Hood.
Growing up as a military child, I understand the significance of being culturally sensitive and inclusive. My experiences led me to join the Manor leadership team to continue to impact others to be their best, authentic self. My philosophy is to value students, teachers, parents, and community members envisioning them as success agents challenging limitations and growing collaboratively.
The position as Campus Facilitator for Special Programs puts me in a place of gratitude and thankfulness for all the individuals leading me and those I will be afforded to lead. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of each other building self-confidence, self-regulation, and internal motivation to push beyond our boundaries, maybe even have a little fun along the way!
