Degrees and Certifications:
I am so excited to be a part of the Brookhaven family and its many traditions! I am truly passionate and committed to providing all students with the tools to achieve success both in, and out of, the classroom. I believe building positive relationships with our amazing community and staff will help foster positive student behavior, helping them navigate through adverse situations, and not allowing circumstances to derail their success. I am dedicated to having a growth mindset and hope to instill that in others so that we can work together to promote equity and make momentous leaps forward to prepare our students for the future.
When I got off of active duty in 2004, I started my education career in KISD at Ellison HS teaching Criminal Justice and AVID. After a few years, we moved to Florida, then Missouri. I had the opportunity to teach PreK, Elementary, and Middle School in the 12 years we were gone, as well as work as a Preschool director. In 2018 we decided to move back to KISD and I spent a year teaching STEM, Architecture, and Education at KHS. My husband of 17+ years is the Head Women’s Soccer coach and a Social Studies teacher at HHHS. We have two daughters and a fur baby named Nala. We are happy to be back in KISD and look forward to working with this community for years to come!
