Education

I received a Bachelor of Science from Corpus Christi University, and a Masters, in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Reading, from Texas A& M Corpus Christi. In addition, I am certified by the state as a Master Reading Teacher. I recently became certified in ESL as well. I have worked in education for twenty six years now and continue to find it a rewarding and fulfilling profession. I am currently the lead teacher for the Grand Central Station, Advanced Academics, and AP Coordinator at Calallen High School.

 



Experience

I began my career at Chula Vista Academy of Fine Arts teaching 4th grade.  I then moved to Wynn Seale Academy of Fine Arts Middle School.  I taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Language Arts.  In addition, I started an at-risk program for students who had been retained multiple times.  I taught at Wynn Seale for 18 years before coming to Calallen.  I have had the pleasure of building an in-school tutorial program for students here at Calallen. 



Bio

I was fortunate enough to be a Navy brat and to have had an opportunity to travel around the world.  My family moved to Corpus when I was 17 years of age and I have made my home here ever since. I met my husband, married and went on to have two incredible (if I do say so myself) children .  Both kids attended and graduated from public schools and went on to become teachers themselves. I am now the proud grandma of 5 grandkids who keep me young.
