Degrees and Certifications:
I am originally from El Paso, Texas, and a graduate of the University of Texas at El Paso, where I received both my undergraduate and graduate degrees. I am certified in secondary reading language arts, speech, journalism, special education, English as a second language, and school administration. I began my career in the El Paso Independent School District, serving as a high school English teacher and varsity swim coach for five years and as a middle school assistant principal for two years. I most recently served as an education specialist at the Texas Education Agency for the last three years, where I worked with district and campus leadership teams to implement, monitor, and evaluate school improvement frameworks, accelerated instruction requirements, and supplemental curriculum programs. I am excited to return to campus leadership this school year, and it is an honor to join the Welch Wolfpack and the Houston Independent School District.
