Welcome to Kerr, home of the Comets! I am excited to be a member of this amazing community and district. I am looking forward to a great year of learning, growing, and having fun with our students, parents, and staff! I am beyond thrilled to be the Assistant Principal at Kerr Elementary. 
    This is my 13th year in education. I taught 3rd grade for ten years at Anderson Elementary and Olson Elementary in Allen. Beginning in 2015, I supported Olson Elementary as the Campus Intervention Specialist. Through supporting students, teachers, and parents, I found my true passion in campus administration. I love coming to work every day and working alongside every campus stakeholder.
    I grew up in the Dallas area and graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. Go Mean Green! I received my Masters in Educational Administration from Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas.  I have wonderful husband of 12 years, Javier, and we have two beautiful children, Jake and Addie. Jake is a first grader at Kerr, and Addie is a fun-loving four year old. We also have a sweet chocolate lab name Macie. 
    I know this is going to be an amazing year and please feel free to contact me at any time.
