    This is my first year at Booker T. Washington and I’m excited to be part of such a positive and caring team of science educators at a school known for its strong values, collaboration, and convivial community.


    Recently, I completed my second master’s degree, this one in teaching, and prior to becoming a teacher I spent eighteen years in the environmental compliance and education industry. In June of 2017, I was the only graduate student from Texas Woman’s University selected to attend National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Minority University Research Education Program (MUREP) Educator Institute at Johnson Space Center in Houston.


    My passion for adventure melds with my passion for education. I am a teacher who loves to use work experiences to make science come alive. I love teaching and it’s a privilege to encourage all students to think critically and to never stop asking questions.

    When not wanting to become an astronaut, I love to explore the outdoors, especially hiking, swimming, camping, and I also enjoy writing, painting, and when I lived in Hawaii, I worked with an octopus and swam with sharks on a regular basis.
