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. 
    I started my career in 2006, teaching 3rd grade at Anderson Elementary.  During my time in education, I have been a third grade teacher at Anderson and Olson Elementary and I have served as a 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 a wonderful husband, Javier, and we have three beautiful children; Jake, Addie, and Olivia. Jake and Addie are both Kerr Comets and our sweet Olivia is a very fun, active toddler.  
    I know this is going to be an amazing year and please feel free to contact me at any time.
