Bird in Flight   Mission Statement
My mission is to instill in my students the belief that they have the power within themselves to soar to their hearts' desires with the support of a safe, caring, respectful, and positive classroom atmosphere. I want to bring them to the realization that education is the breeze that can carry them anywhere. All through their lives, I want them strive to the best human beings they can be.

 Young Boy Helps Younger Boy
 John Holmes Quote
 "Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."     -- Mark Twain

Personal :
I grew up in the Dallas, Texas area. In 1992, my husband and I moved from college to San Antonio, which is where he grew up. We have a fourteen year old daughter, at the High School, and an nine year old daughter, at Cambridge.

Education : I attended Stephen F. Austin State University for three years. I completed my education with a Bachelor's Degree in English at the University of Texas at San Antonio. I completed a Master's Degree through Walden University. I have a Campus Level Technical Support Certification through Region 20 Service Center in San Antonio, Texas.

Teaching : I began my teaching career at Alan B. Shepard Middle School in 1994, where I taught eighth grade Language Arts for eight years and Technology Applications for three years.  In 2005, I moved to South San Antonio High School West Campus where I taught English I and English PreAP I and II. I have been extremely happy and proud to be teaching here at Alamo Heights Junior School since 2006, where I have been able to teach English, Reading, and Theatre Arts.

At Home : When I am not at work, I like to read, sew, visit art museums, and go on nature outings with my husband and daughters. We have a membership to the National Parks. We try to visit them, and go camping, as often as possible.
