I have been working at Celeste High School since 2017. I love teaching in a small community and enjoy the personal connection and ability to get to know my students. I teach English 2, Honors English 2, English 4 and College Bridge. I also sponsor the Beta Club and coach UIL writing events.
I have served as a school librarian for Frisco High School, Incarnate Word High School (Corpus Christi, TX) and taught junior high and high school English and history in south Texas since 2000.
I have been married to my amazing husband and best friend Darren since 1988. We have two sons and one daughter. They have blessed us with six beautiful grandchildren who call us Lolli and Pop.
My favorite thing to do is spend time with my grandkids. Our children and grandchildren come to our house every Sunday and spend the day eating, playing games, fishing, kayaking or whatever else sounds fun that day. My husband and I enjoy outdoor activities such as canoeing and kayaking as well as traveling and wildlife preservation. I also enjoy raising chickens or just sitting on the porch and reading.
