10th-12 Grade N-Z

I am originally from Los Angeles, California, but have lived in Texas for the past 10 years.  This is my 20th year in education, with the last 12 years serving as a counselor on all levels.  I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master of Science in Criminal Justice (specializing in Psychological Services) from Grambling State University.  My daily goal is to make an impact in the lives of students and others, and to empower them to make great choices.  My positive and motivating personality is displayed always, so that students will eventually emulate those same characteristics and leave a valuable impression on others, while remaining motivated to achieve their goals.  I believe that students can achieve anything that they put their mind to. “Believe you can and you’re half way there.” -Theodore Roosevelt.

This journey has been an amazing experience. I hope to observe students become well rounded individuals, by helping them maintain academic, social and emotional balance, as they work toward success. I aim at remaining positive and being the support that all students need and deserve.

I was born and raised in Pine Bluff, Arkansas (mostly), but have lived in Texas for over 30 years.  This is my 13th year in education, with the last 12 years serving as a high school teacher.  I earned a Bachelor of Applied Business Administration in Management, a Master of Business Administration in Management and a Master of Art in Counseling from Dallas Baptist University. 

 

My daily goal is to serve our students as a positive role model AND to assist them in making great choices for their futures.  It is my belief that “people can do ANYthing and EVERYthing they set their mind to."  “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.” -- Henry Ford

 

This journey as an educator has been an AWESOME experience.  I have gained much insight and fulfillment from helping students, their families, and the community.  I enjoy analyzing situations and assisting others to reach alternative approaches in resolving problems as well as collecting information relevant to our students’ academic and social and emotional needs.
