I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University, Nacogdoches, TX.
BS in Biology, with an Emphasis in Aquatic Biology
Texas Teacher Certifications:
I am a member of STAT (Science Teachers Association of Texas).
I have attended many conferences and trainings for Science teachers, including:
I have also attended Capturing Kids’ Hearts training.
This is my 15th year teaching, 3rd year here at DHS. I taught Science for 6 years at a previous high school, then transferred into K-12 Special Education for 6 years. Science has always been my passion, so I was very excited to get back in the high school Science classroom! I am teaching Anatomy & Physiology, Medical Microbiology, and sponsoring the HOSA club. I am also a member of the BUILD Committee and a Mentor Teacher.
My hobbies include:
Rodeos ~ we own ABBI and PBR bucking bulls
Travel ~ I absolutely love to travel in the US and internationally! I believe everyone should have the opportunity to travel internationally at least once in their lifetime. I have the awesome priviledge to combine my two passions as a teacher and traveler by leading student travel groups. Summer of 2022, we will be going to the Swiss Alps and Mediterrean Coast in Europe. If you are interested in student/parent travel, be watching for emails for Summer of 2023 travel!
Reading ~ I am an avid reader, but since I’m on the road traveling a lot, I also listen to audiobooks/podcasts. My favorite genres are true crime, mysteries, and some historical books.
