I graduated in December of 2000 with a degree in Elementary Education from Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Waxahachie, TX. I taught 4th grade in Dallas for the remainder of the 2000-2001 school year. My husband and I moved to Phoenix, AZ, and there I taught 7th and 8th grade at Sierra Verde School. We moved back to Texas in 2003, and I taught Special Education at Maypearl Intermediate School in Maypearl, TX, from 2003-2007. After a 2 year break to stay home with my small children, I began working at Red Oak Elementary in the fall of 2009. I taught Elementary Special Education there until the end of the 2014-2015 school year. In the fall of 2015, I took a position at Red Oak High School as Transition Specialist. I served in that position for 2 years. In the spring of 2017, I earned my Master of Education degree from Stephen F. Austin State University. In 2017, I began serving Red Oak ISD as an Educational Diagnostician.
My husband, Lee, and I have been married since 2001. We have two sweet kiddos, Maddie and Nathan.
