Mrs. Rice

I was born in Houston, TX and grew up in Baytown, TX. I participated in multiple sports and academic competitions growing up. As a college tennis player, I graduated with an Associate of Science and Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Exercise Physiology. I obtained my Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from University of North Texas
I started my career at Texas A&M University coaching tennis before being named head tennis professional at Bay Area Racket Club. From there, I became immersed in the educational system. With over nineteen years in education, I have educated many students in the areas of science, technology, engineering, math, history, leadership and in athletics at districts here in Texas. I have provided consulting services to educational institutions and professional development sessions within districts, as well as at state, national and international conferences. 
In 2011, my family moved to San Antonio. I began teaching at Rolling Meadows Elementary before spending time as the DoDEA STEM Grant Director and STEM Coordinator at district office. This will be my third year as an assistant principal in Judson ISD.
I believe every child can learn given the opportunity. Hands-on learning and problem-solving strategies allow our children to excel in multiple areas. Positive relationships build our children into lifelong learners with a strong future ahead of them.
I look forward to working with you and your child at Copperfield Elementary.
