    This is my 22nd year as an educator.  Over the past 20 years, I have taught English as a Second Language (ESL) in Grapevine-Colleyville ISD and Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD.  The 2017-2018 school year marks my fifth year at Grapevine High School (GHS), and I am thrilled to be a part of such an awesome campus!

    At GHS, it is the goal of the ESL program to create effective readers, writers, speakers, and listeners of the English language.  This is accomplished through the use of research-based, student-centered activities that are tailored to provide GHS’s English language learners with the opportunity to acquire the English language quickly.
