I am excited to be returning to my hometown. This is my fifth year at Granger and my eighteenth year of teaching. I graduated from Granger High School in 1995. I continued my education at Tarleton State University, where I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise and Sports Studies in 1999 and a Master’s degree in Education with a specialization in Physical Education in 2002. While at Tarleton, I was a member of the inaugural Tarleton TexAnn softball team. As a four year starter, I was a three time First Team Lone Star Conference selection, a three time Academic All-Conference selection, and named a GTE Academic All-American.
I started my teaching career in Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD at Creekview High School as a Physical Education teacher and freshman volleyball and varsity softball coach. In 2004, I became the Head Softball coach. As head coach, Creekview made four consecutive post season appearances, including two consecutive years as an area qualifier and one year as district champions. In 2011, I transferred to an elementary P.E. position to spend more time with my family. I have spent the last three years teaching elementary P. E. at Farmers Branch Elementary and Cooper Elementary. At Granger I will be teaching K-6 P.E. My coaching duties will include, junior high volleyball, junior high basketball, and Head Girl’s softball.
I have been married for eleven years and have two children. My daughter Riley is in fourth grade and my son Brodie is in second grade. It is great to be back in the area and I look forward to another awesome year in the classroom and athletics.
