Welcome to Technology Education!

I am very excited to begin my fourth year at Comfort Middle School. I am a native born Texan, but I grew up in Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Florida.

This is my 24th year teaching, and I believe it will be the best yet. I have a B.B.A. in Marketing, a M.B.A., and Certification in Business Education from Texas A&M University. In Texas, I have taught in Paris ISD, Dallas Public Schools, and Garland ISD. In Florida, I helped open South Fort Myers High School (a premiere comprehensive high school) in Lee County. I love teaching and learning; I cannot imagine my life without both. I believe learning should be fun and relevant, and in a computer-based class we get plenty of both!!

I am blessed with two wonderful children, 4 incredible grandchildren, the most amazing rescue dog, and lots of friends. I love to read, play dominos, ride Harleys, watch movies, go to concerts (classic rock and blues) and watch SEC FOOTBALL!!! Go Gators and Gig ‘Em Aggies!

I look forward to getting to know each student and their family. It is an honor and a privilege to teach and be a part of your student’s life.
