I grew up in Oskaloosa, Iowa, graduated from William Penn University (Go Statesmen!), and started teaching and coaching in Hinton, Iowa before moving to Texas. I received my master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Texas Woman’s University while teaching and coaching at the elementary, middle and high school levels. I have served as a campus administrator at many schools in the FWISD each giving me new experiences and opportunities leading me to J.P. Elder. I truly believe that providing a safe, service centered and challenging education to all students will produce the future leaders of our community. PIE Pride-Integrity-Excellence is our motto.
