I have been a part of the Marion Family since the very beginning, back in 2003-2004, when we first opened the doors! I spent 8 years teaching 4th grade, one year teaching 6th grade English/Language Arts, and completed an Administrative Internship this past year. I am truly a Maverick at heart and I am so excited to be the new Assistant Principal!
I grew up in Euless, Texas, and graduated from Trinity High School. I went on to get my Bachelor's degree from Texas A&M University in education with a focus on language arts. I completed my Master's of Education Administration through Grand Canyon University and I am hoping to one day complete my Master's in the Art of Teaching.
I have had 17 years of experience in education that span both middle school and elementary school. I am beginning my 14th school year in Allen and have enjoyed raising my own children at Marion. Please check out the "My Family" section of my website to learn more about my amazing family!
In addition to my work at school, I have dedicated my life to educating people in all aspects of the community. This past year I had the honor of launching a new church in the Allen/McKinney area, Living Life Church, and serve as the Education Director for Juntos Servimos, (in English it means Together We Serve). It is a non-profit organization that provides assistance and support to the children/families of extreme poverty in Matamoros, Mexico. My mission is to provide education to those who need it most!
