Hi there! I am so excited to join the staff at HJHS!  Though I am new to Hardin Jefferson, this is my 19th year in education.  I am a proud Family and Consumer Sciences graduate of Lamar University. 

I enjoy working with young people from all walks of life.  It warms my heart to witness those LIGHTBULB moments - that gleam and surprise in a kid's eye when they finally understand or accomplish a goal.  My main focus in the classroom is to make certain that each of my students walks out every day with another tool in their toolkit and a little more prepared for the world that awaits them outside of the classroom. 

When I'm not at school, I spend my days with my boys.  My husband/ High School sweetheart, Matthew, and I have two sons, Jacob and Jonah.  Our family is always running from sports practice, to karate, to whatever else the boys decide to get involved with.  It's always a wild ride when our crew gets involved!  

If you have questions, feel free to email me or we can set a conference time to visit.
Let's make TODAY your best day yet!
