I am beginning my twenty-fourth year in education and my thirteenth year in Allen ISD. I am extremely excited to be part of this district and community!
In 1999, I graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. In 2006, I received my Master's Degree in Educational Administration from Texas A&M-Commerce.
I began my career teaching third grade in Garland ISD. After teaching there for five years, I then taught third grade in Highland Park for four years. In 2008, I went to Lovejoy Elementary to serve as their assistant principal. Two years later I came to Allen ISD.
On a personal note, I have been married to my wonderful and supportive husband Michael for twenty-two years. We have two sons, Gavin whom is 15 and will be in ninth grade and Garrett is 10 and will be starting fourth grade this year! They are the light of our lives and a joy to be around. We are truly blessed!
I am elated to be here at Vaughan Elementary as your Principal. I am passionate about working with children and I absolutely love my job. I believe all students can and will learn at their highest potential if given the right opportunity. Thank you for giving me the chance to serve your children.
I am looking forward to a great year. Please feel free to contact me at any time.
