Hello Pink Family, 

I am excited to begin my second year at Pink Elementary as the Instructional Coach. This will be my 13th year in education – all in FISD. This will be my sixth year as an Instructional Coach. I had the pleasure of serving Bledsoe Elementary as their Instructional Coach for 4 years and before that I was a classroom teacher.

Just a little about my educational background, I have a B.A. in Advertising and Public Relations with a minor in Political Science and a B.S. in Elementary Education with an emphasis on Early Childhood Education. I completed my student teaching in FISD at Borchardt Elementary. I am currently pursuing my Masters in Education in Administration.

I bring a love of curriculum serving as a curriculum writer for the past four years in 2nd Grade Social Studies, 5th Grade Math, and 5th Grade Social Studies. I consider myself a life-long learner who believes in continuous growth. I am passionate about the role of Instructional Coach; the opportunity to be a servant leader and learn alongside an amazing group of educators, such as the staff of Pink Elementary, is priceless. As Rumi said, “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” It is apparent that Pink is a wonderful school with amazing students, parents, and teachers. It is simply a happy campus and a joy to work here. I am looking forward to my partnership with Pink in setting goals, aligning curriculum, and advancing our common purpose: student achievement. I truly feel blessed to be a part of the 2017-2018 school year.
