I started as a School Counselor at Hempstead Elementary School in August of 2019. I have enjoyed working here so far. We have amazing staff members and students and it really feels like a family!
I started teaching for the Meridian Public School District in Meridian, MS in 1997. Prior to that I had worked as a Special Education para from August 1994- December 1996. I did my student teaching in MPSD from January 1997-June 1997. During the summers from 1995-2000 I worked for a summer camp called Camp High Hopes which served students ages 3-21 who had disabilities. I began as a counselor and worked up to Director in just a few summers.
I moved to TX in 2002 and have worked for Grace Christian Academy as their Triumph Coordinator (similar to 504), Sealy ISD as a 3rd Grade teacher, Boys and Girls Country as a Tutor, Waller ISD as a PPCD teacher, Cy-Fair ISD as a Resource teacher, Co-Teacher, PPCD teacher and School Counselor.
I have been married to my husband, Larry, since 2010. I have one AMAZING step-daughter named Reba who is 28 years old. She attended school in Huntsville and Graduated from Sam Houston State University. She currently works for TX parks and rec. I have 2 cute chihuahuas named Pinto and Charro. They bring me so much joy!
When I am not teaching, I enjoy writing, playing the piano and riding on the motorcycle with Larry.
I am also a member of the Houston Show Choir -Heart & Soul Ladies Ensemble. We’ve been doing virtual video recordings and holding our rehearsals through ZOOM since March due to Covid-19. It’s been an interesting and fun experience!
