I am so excited to join the leadership team at Bastrop Middle School! I am beginning my 21st year in education and my first year in Bastrop ISD! My passion for helping others began in 4th grade when I was blessed with an amazing teacher and was inspired to make a difference and positively impact the lives of children. I began my career in education as a teacher at the elementary level. I've served as a Curriculum Coordinator, Assistant Principal and Principal, always keeping in mind my purpose - Supporting both students and staff in achieving excellence in multiple arenas.I graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and also hold a Masters Degree from Texas A&M in Curriculum and Instruction. (Gig 'Em, Aggies! WHOOP!) I aspire to encourage all students to reach for the stars and dream big! I want my students to know that with effort and perseverance, anything is possible, and I'll be cheering them on every step of the way!I look forward to collaborating with the students, staff, families and BMS community this school year!
