Students and Parents
My expectations include the following: excellence in academic performance and in conduct/behavior.
Note: I follow the guidelines established by GISD. Furthermore, I expect students to comply, as well.
I am a proud graduate of The Pennsylvania State University (BS) plus Northwestern State University of Louisiana (MEd+30).
At Penn State I earned a BS degree in a dual major of Secondary Education and Comprehensive English plus a minor in Journalism. WE ARE!
At NSU I earned an MEd+30 degree in Supervision of Education PK-12.
Beyond public education accomplishments, I also have earned a Real Estate license plus a Paralegal certificate.
I have lived in four (4) different states: my hometown is Hearne, Texas. In addition, I have taught in 3 states, 10 districts, and, now, 12 schools. It's great to be a Goat!
