Welcome to another awesome year at Wagner High School. I look forward to working with students to successfully master Biology concepts in anticipation of great STAAR results. Due to the 5x5 schedule this year, STAAR testing will occur twice this year so we definitely have our work cut out for us.
I have been in education for 13 years as a teacher in various settings. I started my career teaching IPC in NISD. I was there for a year and moved to Colorado. After returning to the great State of Texas, I spent a year at Smithson Valley High School teaching Biology and Earth Science. Working for Hays County Juvenile Center as the only Science teacher in their bootcamp program, I learned a great deal about cultural diversity and how to reach those students they may have not seen the inside of a classroom for extended periods. I loved my work there and stayed for four years before I decided a move back to public school would allow me to use the skills I'd gained in that setting to benefit a wider range of students.
I am starting my 8th year at Wagner High School and can truly say the students I've had over the years hold a special place in my heart. I love seeing fresh faces every year and seeing how returning alumni have become successful adults.
My hobbies include puzzles and motorcycles. I love spending my weekends unwinding riding through the hill country with my husband; both children are grown.
