Degrees and Certifications:
I grew up in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and graduated high school from Rockwall High School.
Then, I attended college at The University of Texas at Austin and finished with a bachelor’s degree in
English Literature. I began my career as an English teacher at Sam Houston High School in Arlington,
Texas in 2001. I have had also had the privilege of teaching in Hurst-Euless-Bedford and Garland ISDs. I
currently teach English II at Uvalde High School. I enjoy going for walks, taking my daughter to the park,
and reading novels. My favorite novel is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin. I believe in having a positive
attitude and hard work. These two elements are what drive success.
