    The 2020-2021 school year, I will begin my eleventh year as a teacher and my eighth year in Allen ISD as I spent five years teaching 7th and 8th graders at Ereckson Middle School. I love teaching this subject because we all have been impacted by this industry either through travel, food and beverage or simply out with family or friends doing a fun activitiy.

    Over the course of this year my goal is to build relationships with my students and see the hospitality program flourish. So buckle up and get ready for an amazing year. A-UP!!!
