Howdy! I am a Rhetoric School English teacher at BCS. I also advise the School Life Team and the TAPPS Academics Team. I graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in English and a minor in History. My certification is in English Language Arts & Reading grades 8-12. In December, I will complete a Masters in Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on Literacy Studies from UT Arlington.
I am originally from Virginia Beach, Virginia, but I’ve lived in Bryan/College Station for the past 17 years. My husband Neal and I have two kids: Rachel is a freshman at the University of North Texas and Mikey is a senior at BCS. We attend Grace Bible Church (Anderson campus) where I am involved in the worship ministry.
