I hold a bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (Education) with a Reading emphasis from Texas A&M University, a master's degree in Library and Information Science from the University of Texas at Austin, and a Texas teaching certificate in journalism. Academic honors include Cum Laude, Kappa Delta Pi Honor Society, and Golden Key International Honour Society.
In addition to managing the library, I am the yearbook adviser and I teach broadcast journalism. I also serve as the campus dyslexia interventionist, the faculty liaison for our PTO, and the campus liaison for HISD's Family and Community Engagement (FACE) program.
I have worked as a Texas educator for over 20 years and joined Carnegie in 2017. I have worked with every grade level within my library career, including three years as a college reference and collection development librarian. While I thought research might be my future, I ultimately discovered that my passion lies in working with high school students.
I sponsor the following clubs at CVHS:
Name That Book
Film Making Club
Arts & Crafts Club
My husband and I have a daughter who attends Baylor University and we have a goldendoodle named Chewy Blue (Chewbacca, Chew, Chew-Dog, Chew-Bug, Chew-Burger, etc.). I enjoy reading, jewelry design & metalsmithing, guitar-strumming, fitness, and travel.
