I have also served as Academic Coach here at Woodlake, RTI facilitator at Paschall ES as well as RTI teacher, and 5th Grade teacher at Park Village ES. Before moving to Texas, I taught Global History, U.S. History, Government, and Economics on the secondary level in both New York and Georgia. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology and a Master’s Degree in Education from the City University of New York at Queens College. I completed my Principal Preparation Program at Angelo State University. My certifications include Generalist EC-6, Social Studies 4-8, and Principal.
