It is with great enthusiasm that I have the opportunity to be part of the S.C. Lee team and Cougar family as one of the two Assistant Principals at S.C. Lee JHS.
I began my teaching career in CCISD 9 years ago as a kindergarten teacher. Throughout the years and prior to getting into administration, I taught most of the grade-levels in elementary, focusing on RLA in 3rd – 5th grades. During my career with CCISD, I have had the opportunity to have been able to work closely with so many remarkable staff members throughout the district, awesome students, and amazing parents/guardians on school initiatives, professional development, and community events.
I strongly believe that students grow and achieve more when they are challenged and surrounded by involved and compassionate adults, both within and outside the walls of a school, and understand that we play a tremendous role in giving our students what each and every one of them deserve—a top-quality, rigorous education that will prepare them well for success in college, military, and life. I truly appreciate building positive relationships with parents, students, and teachers, and believe when we are able to make the home/school connection with our parents, we will often see the result of a student who is more committed to their own achievements and more informed of their academic journey.
I moved to Copperas Cove 11 years ago from Austin, then married my amazing husband shortly thereafter. Between the two of us, we have 6 children ranging from the ages of 18 down to 6 years old, all of whom attend CCISD. We are grounded in our faith, enjoy staying active each day through walking/running and strength training, are very involved in our children’s extra-curricular activities, and are always looking forward to spending time together as a family at home.
I look forward to being in the hallways with the students, seeing them engaged in their classrooms, and watching them develop into young adults as we guide them academically. I’m excited and honored to join the S.C. Lee family and am looking forward to an incredible year. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if we can ever be of assistance.
