Hi and welcome to my homepage!  
I am originally from the Houston area (Baytown) and lived in Nacogdoches for a while before settling in Tyler 14 years ago.  This will be my 12th year in education.  My first career was in television and, though I loved it, television wasn't my passion.  I've been a teacher and administrator and I truly love what I do.  At Cumberland, I will be the Reading RtI teacher and look forward to working with my students.  
On a personal note, I've been married to my beloved husband for 14 years and we have a Shiba Inu puppy named Kitsune who truly runs our house.
