After graduating from the University of Houston with a degree in journalism, I began my career as a writer in public relations with ARA Living Centers (a long-term health career corporation).  I later worked for the  Internal Revenue Service in the Office Audit and Appeals Departments.  However, I was not satisfied with my direction.  Something was missing.  I learned about a new teaching program, the Alternative Certification Program in Houston Independent School District.  I was accepted into the program in 1989. Deciding to become a teacher has been one of the best decisions I made.  
I started my teaching career at Atherton Elementary in HISD.  I taught third and fourth grades for eight years at Atherton.  I joined Aldine ISD in 1997 to teach at Oleson Elementary as a Math Specialist. The next year I was assigned to be a Lead Teacher and Reading Specialist in fourth grade.  I received a masters degree from the University of Houston in Educational Leadership and Administration in 1999.   The same year I was appointed as Assistant Principal at Oleson.   I served in this capacity for five years until being named Principal at Magrill Elementary in 2004.  In the fall of  2008, I became the Principal at A.W. Jones Elementary the first year the school opened.   Each year has been different yet always rewarding.  I have seen students enter the doors with a look of anticipation and leave in four years with so many expectations for their future.  I truly enjoy watching our students soar like eagles each day.  
I spend my leisure time with my husband, three children, and one granddaughter.

     Upon graduating from The University of Texas at Austin, I began my marketing career as a Sales Representative at Xerox Corporation, marketing copiers. I then went to work for National Convenience Stores, managing 12 Stop 'N Go Convenience Stores in Houston, Missouri City and Sugarland. After volunteering at the Christian School my children attended, I was asked to teach.  I found interest in teaching.   I was offered a position to teach. I taught at the Channelview Christian School for eight years and then obtained my certification through ACP in Houston Independent School District. I worked one year as a 4th Grade Bilingual teacher in Houston ISD at Pugh Elementary. One year later, I transferred to Aldine ISD and worked as a 3rd Grade ESL Math/Science/Social Studies ESL teacher for eight years. I pursued my administration certification and became an Assistant Principal. I served as Assistant Principal for eight years at Worsham Elementary before going to work as an Instructional Coach in Houston ISD. I returned to Aldine ISD as an Assistant Principal at Jones Elementary in 2013. I most enjoy my job as an Assistant Principal leading teachers to success and helping students learn.  
  
I am married with three adult daughters and a two year old grand daughter and a 7 month old grandson.
