Hello Wilson Elementary!
I am so thrilled to begin another year at Wilson Elementary! It is a joy and privilege for me to work with such talented students and dedicated staff members.
My journey as an educator began 13 years ago. That journey has taken me to amazing places and given me some of my most valuable experiences. In 2003, I graduated from East Texas Baptist University with a Bachelor of Science in Education with a specialization in Biology. From there, I went on to teach 4th, 5th, and 6th grade for several years. I truly loved every moment of my time as a classroom teacher.
In 2011, I was given the opportunity to be the Curriculum Administrator and Campus Intervention Specialist at Rivera Elementary in Denton ISD. During that time,I completed my Masters in Educational Leadership from Stephen F. Austin University and in 2014 I joined the Wilson team as the Assistant Principal.
On a personal note, I have been married for 10 years and have 2 children. My son is 7 years old and will be a 2nd grade student at Wilson this year. I am so impressed by how much he learns every day. My daughter is 4 years old and ready to join mom and brother at school. I love to be with my family and just enjoy everything that life brings our way. I have a deep passion for Science and all things nature related. If I could be outside all the time, I would. I am a natural explorer and always have a need to experience new places and things. I also like to try out fun new recipes and craft projects.
This past summer I was able to visit several schools in Uganda and that experience has ignited in me an even deeper passion for education. Education is such a precious gift. Nelson Mandela said that, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world". I truly believe that. I believe that education is transformative and life changing! Education has the power to enrich a student's life in the most amazing ways and I am honored to be a part of that every day. I want all students to love school and be excited about their learning!
I look forward to getting to know everyone this year!
