About me:
Welcome! I am excited to start my 11th year teaching and my 3rd year teaching at Akins High School.  I am a native born Texan.  I grew up in the Houston area and moved to Austin for college.  I attended the University of Texas at Austin.  Hook'em Horns!  Although I did not originally want to be a teacher, teaching found me.  My desire to help students overcome challenges in the classroom and feel success keeps me coming back each year.  Teaching is a hard, but fun and rewarding job.
When I'm not lesson planning, grading, and teaching, I like to spend my time exploring the outdoors with friends and my old dog Buddy.  I will also be sponsoring the Just Keep Livin' Club this year.  JKL is an after school club that supports healthy, active living with activities such as bike riding, camping, cooking, workouts and more!  
I look forward to meeting all of my students and working with their families to ensure a successful year.  Please call or email me with any questions or concerns!
