I'm looking forward to a new beginning at the Junior High. I have been working in the district for the past 7 years at the Intermediate campus. I had great experiences working with the wonderful staff there, but I decided that I wanted a change. It was time that I get back into coaching which is what I will be doing at the Junior High. My previous position before coming to La Vernia was in SAISD. I worked there as a Special Education teacher and coach for 3 years and before that I taught and coached in Austin ISD for 7 years. I think that adds up to 17 years of teaching and coaching experience.....wow when I first started in education I had a head of hair. I'll attribute the hair loss to my own personal children, of which I have three. I will also be in charge of ISS, which is short for In School Suspension. While in that capacity I look forward to providing a distraction free environment and encouraging students to reflect on their educational goals.
