I grew up all over the place (military family)-was always encouraged to be curious and respectful of new cultures and value education. I graduated from University Of Texas in San Antonio with a degree in History and started teaching in 1997. I have taught AP curriculum for the last fifteen years. I am both honored and privileged to be teaching for the sixteenth year in Pearland ISD and raising my family of seven in our wonderfully diverse community.
I look forward to a Fantastic year and encourage you to keep in contact with me via email/remind.
