Welcome back Rockets. I am so glad to have you in my English/Reading class this year.
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. I have been working in education for 13 years. I spent three years as an instructional aide while I was completing the work for my Bachelor's degree. I graduated from Texas A& M University-Kingsville with a Bachelor of Arts in English and a minor in Spanish. I have spent the last ten years in the classroom working with hundreds of students. This is my fourth year at Judson High School and I am proud to be a Judson Rocket!!!!!
On a personal note, I have been married to my wonderful husband for 4 years and we have one amazing child. My son is currently serving the United States Marine Corps. He is currently stationed in Southern California. I am so proud of him. He will be finishing up his service within the next few months and returning home to attend college.
I am currently working on my Master of Education in School Counseling. I should finish my coursework by next summer and I will be doing my internship in Fall 2021.
