Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to my McMath home page. This school year marks my twenty-fourth year as an educator. I feel very fortunate and blessed by the wonderful students, parents, and colleagues that I have had the opportunity to work with along this journey.
My first nine years I was in the classroom as well as being in the gym. I started teaching in Stanton, Texas, as a 7th grade Science teacher and 7th/8th grade Girls' Athletics Head Coach. After working there for five years, my daughters and I moved here to Denton. I then worked at McMath Middle School as a 7th and 8th Science teacher and also 7th/8th grade girls athletic coach. I completed my Master's in School Administration and applied for a position to work beside Sam Kelley at Hodge Elementary. Those nine years were such a learning opportunity for me as an elementary administrator. In June 2015, I was offered the opportunity to make a move back to McMath MS and work with Dr. Debbie Nobles and her team. My career path has allowed me to be rewarded daily.
I am married to a wonderful man named Johnny Francis. It will be sixteen years in February 2021. He has brought tremendous joy to my life as well as giving me three step sons, two daughter-in-laws and four grandchildren. My heart melts when I hear the name...NANA!!! I have two daughters that are graduates of Denton High School. Both of my girls are working full-time to be independent adults.
I look forward to the chance of working with you and your child(ren) this year. Please do not hesitate to contact me.
