More professional development sessions are listed in my curriculum vitae.

Current Position:

This is my eighth year teaching and also my eighth year at Boles High School.

I teach American Sign Langauge 1, 2, and 3 & 4-combined. I also faciliate CCP World Geography class. I am sponsoring the American Sign Language Club, American Sign Language Honor Society, and the Class of 2027.

Previous Position:

I completed my 60 days of student-teaching experience at Katy ISD the past spring (January-May 2016). I did two days of substitute teaching and a day of proctoring the American Sign Language Level 1 Credit by Exam (CBE) for Katy ISD as well.

I was a sign language tutor at several colleges before I went to Lamar University in Beaumont. I did tutoring at Eastfield College in Mesquite, Collin College – Spring Creek Campus in Plano, and Lamar University. The students and the teachers at these schools complimented that I helped the students understand the language and linguistics of American Sign Language and its American Deaf Culture. They encouraged me to become an American Sign Language teacher.

Family Information:

I am a native Texan living in Greenville. I have a mixed German Shepherd dog named Suzy.

Personal Information:

I have so many hobbies but not enough time to do them. However, if I do find time, I would do these things:

  • playing disc golf
  • cooking and baking different savory and sweet dishes
  • road-tripping and camping
  • table-top role-playing-, board-, and video gaming (either on Steam for PC or Nintendo Switch)
