    I'm a Dallas native and have mostly lived and taught in the North Dallas area my whole life. This year marks my 11th year teaching High School Math. The highlight of my career was making the choice to move back to Oak Cliff and teach in the BTECH Program at Molina. Meeting and working with these motivated and inspiring students has reminded me why I love teaching.

    Educational Highlight: In California I taught at a High School for Teen Mothers. Watching those young women manage motherhood while continuing to get their education was impressive and inspiring. Several have gone on to earn college degrees and start careers. I love it when students achieve something they didn't think they could accomplish. Watching that joy and excitement reminds me why I'm a teacher.
