Personal Information:
I am from McAllen, a city located in the southern part of Texas which is also referred to as the Rio Grande Valley.  I graduated from McAllen High School, home of the Bulldogs in 1990! I pursued higher education in San Antonio where I graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a Bachelor of Science in Biology.  I began my teaching career at Health Careers High School in San Antonio.  I spent two additional years teaching in San Antonio before my husband's job moved us to Dallas.  I had the opportunity to teach in Dallas ISD and Garland ISD before moving to Wylie.
I have been married for 21 years and have two girls who attend WISD schools.  I am excited to be raising my kids in this district. I can't imagine any place better.  
I love teaching science.  I knew I wanted to be a teacher the minute I walked into my freshman biology class.  My teacher taught me the meaning of hard work and dedication.  I believe that a teacher who dares to teach must never stop learning.  I look forward to meeting you and getting to know you better.  I am here to help you be successful.
