I have been teaching in Alief ISD since 1982 and have had the opportunity to work with exceptional students and staff at Holub, Elisk, O'Donnell, Hastings 9th Grade Center, Alief Early College, and Kerr. My education includes a B.A. from Central University of Iowa and a M.A. from University of Houston. In 2012, I was honored to be selected as the Alief secondary teacher of the year. I received the Houston West Chamber of Commerce secondary teacher of the year award in 2013.
