    I graduated from the University of North Texas in 2012 with a Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. In 2016, I obtained my Special Education degree. 


    I have 7 years of professional experience working with students in elementary education. For the past five years I have been an employee in GCISD as a paraprofessional in special education.  Prior to that I worked in Galveston, Texas as a paraprofessional in pre-k for two years.

    Hobbies and Interests:

    I love spending time with my 3 children.  When we aren’t playing board games, watching movies or Wii bowling, you can find us at the baseball fields or dance class. In my free time, I enjoy watching the Dallas Cowboys and the Texas Rangers on T.V. and going to the games.

    I am looking forward to a wonderful year at Silver Lake!  It’s THE place to be!
