Education:  After beginning my college career in my home state of Arkansas, and spending a couple of years at the University of Arkansas Monticello playing college basketball on a scholarship, I decided to take a little break. I resumed my college education at the University of Houston and received my bachelor’s degree in health. 
Certifications:  I am certified in K-12 Physical Education and health.
Professional Experiences:  I began my teaching career in Aldine ISD at a junior high campus where I taught PE and coached girls’ basketball, track, volleyball, and soccer over the duration of the 6 years I was there. I then moved to a high school campus where I taught PE and health and coached girls’ JV basketball. After Aldine, I moved to HISD and I’m now starting my 7th year at Kolter. Each and every day I put my heart and soul into teaching PK-5th graders all about physical education and try my best to pass along my pa
Hobbies - Interests:  Spending a few years in Baton Rouge, I gained an extreme love for all things LSU, but mostly cheering on their college football team. In my free time I enjoy hanging with my family, watching sports (Geaux Tigers, Texans, Astros, & Rockets!), playing with the puppy, travelling, & trying out new recipes.
