Welcome to a new school year! We are off to a great start this year. I would like to reassure parents and guardians that Lee is the place to be. Our faculty and staff members have a heart that desires to see our students succeed. I have been at Lee for seven years now. Although faculty and staff may come and go the priority remains the same; ensuring a safe and great learning environment for success.

I have worked for Copperas Cove ISD for ten years. My first three years with CCISD were at Clements/Parsons Elementary as a Pre-K teacher. I worked concurrently on obtaining a Masters of Education in School Counseling. I graduated with my Masters from Tarleton State University-Central Texas in May 2007. My first counseling position was at Langford Elementary with Austin ISD. Then I obtained a counseling position here at S.C. Lee JH where I have enjoyed working with a great administration, faculty, and staff. In addition to a Masters degree, I also have an Associate of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education from Mount St. Mary's College in California and a Bachelors degree in Psychology from Tarleton State University-Central Texas.

Again, I am here to assist in any way I can. I know that junior high years can be challenging for both parents and students, so please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
