I'm excited to be returning to Aubrey High School for the 2021-2022 school year. I'm looking forward to great successes from ALL of my students. Let's do this!
This is my 20th year in public education and my 11th at Aubrey High School. I've been fortunate enough to work with students in several different environments including teaching math, science, English and social studies in the pediatric oncology units at Medical City and Children's Hospital of Dallas. I learned more from these amazing teen cancer patients than I can ever thank them for.
Prior to entering high school education, I worked in corporate training and development (Brinker International) and retail management (REI - Recreational Equipment, Inc.) for eleven years.
Although I've lived on each edge of the U.S. (California, Georgia, Montana & Texas), I was born in Denton, graduated from UNT and I keep ending up back in north Texas. I have lived just outside of Aubrey, America since 2003, and have no plans of going anywhere soon.
When I'm not at school, preparing for school, or attending a school-sponsored event...whew!...I enjoy backpacking, kayaking, inline skating, cycling, running and messing around with guitars, motorcycles and old cars. I often spend my summers guiding adventure travel trips in North America and Europe for Zephyr Adventures. While current events have recently limited my international guiding opportunities, I did still manage some lengthy backpacking, bicycling and motorcycling adventures this summer, and I look forward to more in the near future.
