      • I graduated from The University of Texas @ Arlington in 2011 where I majored in Education. I will be going into my 9th year of teaching and coaching during the 2020-2021 school year. For the past 8 years, I have taught middle school ELA and coached football and basketball. I look forward to being a Bobcat because of the people I get to work with each and every day. These people make coming to work feel like home. I teach because some of the most influential adults in my life were my teachers and coaches and I hope to be that for my students and athletes as well.
