• Welcome to Preston, home of the Pride!  I am proud to be a member of this amazing campus and district.  I am looking forward to a year of learning, growing and fun with our students, parents and staff!

     My educational background is in 1st and 3rd grade as well as some time as a high school English II teacher.  In 2013 I began my administrative career as a Curriculum Director for Childress I.S.D and during that time served as a high school and elementary interim campus principal where I found my true passion, campus administration.  I love coming to work every day and supporting all campus stakeholders. 

    I grew up in the Dallas area and after six years in west Texas I am glad to be back home!   I enjoy traveling and spending time with my husband, Cody.  We have two wonderful girls, Brynn who is a 5th grader here at Preston and Chandler who is a 7th grader at Curtis.  I am a proud Texas Tech Red Raider where I graduated with a degree in Early Childhood.  I received my Masters in Educational Administration from Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas.

    Preston Elementary is dedicated to creating a supportive environment focused on learner-centered instruction, built on character, and developed through professional growth and collaboration with colleagues, parents and the community with the common purpose of supporting students in becoming engaged and successful learners.   Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
