Thanks for visiting my webpage.  I hope to add to this page throughout the year.  Check frequently for new information.
I graduated from Katy High School in 1983.  I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology from Howard Payne University in 1987.  I graduated from Tarleton State University on December 11, 2015, with a Master's Degree in Educational Administration.
I have been teaching in Alvarado ISD for 11 years; the past 7 at the High School and the previous 4 at the Junior High School.  I have also taught in Katy ISD, Ennis ISD, Palmer ISD, and Grapevine ISD.  I also spent one year teaching 5th and 6th grade math and science in a private school.
