Biography:
This is my 12th year with Uplift Education. I taught 2nd grade for six years at UNHP. Beginning in 2012, I worked in the Central Management Office on the Teaching and Learning Team for a few years. I worked with the deans and directors at all of the primary schools in Uplift to create and manage curriculum, lesson plans, and assessments. I also supported all of the primary schools in implementing the Primary Years Programme (the primary portion of the International Baccalaureate.) While working on the Teaching and Learning team, I helped one Uplift school become an authorized IB World School, and six other schools became IB Candidate Schools. While I thoroughly enjoyed working with all of the campuses and school leadership teams, I deeply missed the families and scholars at UNHP. I am eager to meet our new families who will be joining us this year. I know we're going to have a great school year!

I am originally from San Antonio, but I've lived in the Dallas area for about 16 years. I graduated from Dallas Christian College in 2006 with a major in Elementary Education and a minor in English. My husband and I live in Carrollton with our two Golden Retrievers - our 5 1/2 year old, Lucy, and our 1 year old, Dakota.

It is my goal this year to support every teacher and scholar in reaching their personal and academic goals.
