    About the Assistant Principal
    Time flies when you’re at the best school in Texas.  Starting my 11th year at Dove I'm so very blessed to be at a school in a community that has so much to offer.  My job is easier when you have the best teachers, parents, and students that anyone could ask for.


    I graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi with a double degree in Elementary Education and International Business. My graduate degree in Administrative Education is from Texas Woman’s University.  I am originally from Louisiana, where I still have lots of family and love to visit.


    My career in education started in Dallas ISD as a third grade teacher.  Then I moved to Irving where I taught third, fourth, and fifth grade.  One of the highlights of my teaching days was I was able to loop with the same group of students from third, fourth, and fifth grade.  My favorite subject to teach was reading.  I loved exposing students to the wonderful stories that literature can offer. 


    My husband is originally from Peru, speaks Spanish, and is an avid Cowboy fan!!!  We have two fun loving and crazy girls.  As a third grader, Audrey loves to read!  At just five years old Stella Rose can test our patience daily.  I wouldn't trade them for anything:)


    I love being in education.  The hustle, bustle, and the excitement is fun!  There’s nothing more exciting than seeing kids come back from a holiday and being excited to jump back into learning.  I often miss the classroom, especially the relationships that you as a teacher develop with students.  I hope as an assistant principal I provide the support that parents, teachers, and students need to make the school a safer and better place to learn.
