This is my third year at VAHS and I am very proud to be a Panther! I am extremely passionate about high school students and helping them achieve their goals, whether they are academic, social, or emotional. I moved out of the classroom in the 201-2020 school year, but when I was teaching I was a physics and astronomy teacher for McKinney ISD. I am originally from the Houston area, but have had the opportunity to live and work all over the southern United States. I completed my undergraduate degree at Texas A&M University - College Station and my master's degree at Angelo State University. Outside of school, my passion is for animals and agriculture. Any free time I have is spent raising and training dogs for service work and on the farm with my Quarter Horses. I look forward to supporting students and parents this year, and I know every year I will learn as much from y'all as you learn from me!
