Teacher Certification - Special Education in 2008 and Family Consumer Science in 2012


I have been teaching at Harlandale High School for 5 years now.  I started off in the Special Education Department as itinerant support for freshman English.  I enjoyed this assignment for 2 years before switching gears and joining the Career and Technical Education Department as one of the Family and Consumer Science teachers.

From 2012-2014 I taught Child Development, Lifetime Nutrition and Wellness, and Principles of Human Services.  Beginning the 2014-2015 school year, I took on a new challenge teaching the Practicum in Education and Training classes (formerly known as Ready, Set, Teach).  I thoroughly enjoy teaching these classes and helping our students reach their goal of one day becoming a teacher.


I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas.   I have two children - a son who is 17 and a daughter who is 15.  I attended Texas A&M University @ College Station my freshmen year of college but was offered a full scholarship to play softball at Missouri Valley College in Marshall, Missouri.  It was an opportunity I could not turn down.  I studied Accounting and graduated with a Bachelors degree in 1991.  I worked in the Accounting field for 20+ years before becoming a teacher.  Teaching was a dream I had had for years but did not take the leap to achieve that dream until I received my certification in Special Education in 2008.  

Both of my children are very involved in various extra-curricular activities, such as, football, soccer, theater arts, voice lessons, and track so my home life is very busy. When we have the opportunity, we like to take vacations as a family to places like Puerto Vallarta; Cancun; Steamboat Springs, Colorado; Lafayette, Louisianna; and other Texas cities like Dallas, Houston, Austin.  

I have lived in San Antonio and Austin here in Texas; as well as, Missouri, Washington state and Georgia. One day I think I would like to live in either Colorado or Tennessee.  I have visited both of these states and liked them very much.
