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 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 teach yearbook and broadcast journalism. I also serve as the campus dyslexia interventionist.
I have worked as a Texas educator for over 20 years and joined CVHS in 2017. While most of my experience has been at the middle school level I also spent three years as an academic reference and collection development librarian. I thought research might be my future, but ultimately discovered that my passion lies in working with high school students.
I sponsor the following clubs at CVHS:
Name That Book Club
I have been married for 24 years and we have an only daughter who is a senior in high school. We also just got a goldendoodle puppy named Chewy Blue ("Chewy Bluey," "Baby Blue," "Blues Clues," "Chewy Pooey," "Chewbacca," etc.). And he is definitely living up to his name!
I enjoy reading, writing, jewelry design/metalsmithing, fitness, and travel.
