About Coach B


    Hello, and welcome to PE at Reed Elementary!

    I am extremely excited to begin my 1st year as a Reed Owl, and teaching all kids the importance of living an active and healthy lifestyle. A brief history into Coach B's life: I was born in Plano and have lived in Allen my entire life. I attended Vaughan Elementary, Ford Middle School, and Allen High School so I know how important community is in the city of Allen. I graduated from Texas Tech University with my Bachelor's Degree and The University of Texas at Austin with my Master's Degree in Kinesiology. I've been working within Allen ISD for 6 years, and I realize how fortunate I am to work for such an amazing district! I look forward to seeing your kids every day and helping them become more engaged in a variety of physical activities. Any questions or comments that may come up please feel free to contact me whenever is convenient for you.
