I am beginning my twenty-third year in education and my twelfth 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-one years. We have two sons, Gavin whom is 14 and will be in eighth grade and Garrett is 9 and will be starting third 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.
