I grew up in Corpus Christi and spent most of my adult life in Austin. In 2005 I moved to New York City where I had the amazing opportunity to teach in a class filled with students from as many as 14 different countries and cultures. I moved back to Texas 8 years ago and joined the HISD family.

When I am not spending time with my family, I enjoy reading, writing and cheering for the Texas Longhorns. My greatest wish for my students is that they will read something every day and keep a journal of their life.
