Welcome to “OUR” 2nd Grade class at THE Katherine Johnson Technology Magnet Academy, where our goal is to Elevate to Excellence, while our “Scholars Drive to Success.” I am extremely excited about this school year and the opportunities this 2nd grade year will offer.

         I am a native of Dallas, Texas, where I graduated from Townview Magnet Center (HSHP), obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Health Science from Texas Woman’s University (where I became proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.), after which, I attended Dallas Baptist University and graduated with a Master’s in Counseling. My motto is “Education is Essential”, therefore it is only right for me to live out my own beliefs. I am a HUGE family person. I have 3 children, a set of twins who are in 7th grade and son who has just started his SENIOR YEAR!!!!!!! They keep me SUPER busy!

My career in education began in 2005 at St. Anthony School in South Dallas. I have taught Kinder, 2nd, 5th, and 6th-8th Middle School Science. All of my years taught have been at SAS, so, I am new to DesotoISD. My educational accomplishments include being an IB World certified teacher, Team Lead, school events coordinator and Teacher of the Year! Education is my PASSION!

I would love for us to partner this year in being able to develop our young learners. The opportunities for FUN and LEARNING this year are ENDLESS! They WILL be prepared for 3rd grade. You WILL begin to see balanced, principled-risk takers, who accept the challenge to learn, grow, and succeed DAILY. My goal is to ignite the passion for learning in every student I have the honor to teach.


Together……We Will!
