  • 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!
