    Hello! I have been an educator for 26 years. I started my career teaching Jr. High Math and coaching. I have been a part of Plainview ISD for 17 years as a math teacher, Assistant Principal and now Principal. I have a Bachelor of Science from Angelo State University and a Master's degree in Educational Administration from Wayland Baptist University. I am married and have three daughters. I am so grateful to be part of a wonderful school and district.

    I have been involved in education since 1990.  I have a passion for helping kids and watching them grow.  I spent 23 years in the classroom teaching middle school Math, Science and Social Studies before becoming an Assistant Principal. I have coached girls basketball, softball, cross country and track. One of the biggest rewards is seeing former students that have grown into productive citizens of our community. It is an honor to work with your children. 

    Originally from Canyon, Texas, I moved to Plainview in 2008.  I have 3 grown children, Leland, Kenda and Monty and 3 sweet grandchildren, Braylen, Makenlee, and Hayse.  In my spare time, I am watching my grandchildren showing their lambs, steers, and heifers at major stock shows and watching them play football and basketball and I am chasing my sons all over the country rodeoing (saddle bronc riding and team roping),  my best friend is my daughter, who is my rock. My faith and my family are very important to me.

    As the Instructional Technologist/Registrar on our campus, I have a dual role. I handle student registration, grades, and progress reports/report cards as the registrar and aid our students and teachers in using technology effectively in the classroom as the instructional technologist which is the role I love most.  I began my career as an educator in 1990 and have always served at the middle school level where I have had the pleasure of teaching ELAR, Social Studies, Math, and Technology Applications over the years.  I thoroughly enjoy teaching kids and my colleagues new ways that technology can be used in the classroom to ignite learning. One of my favorite quotes is from George Couros, author of The Innovator's Mindset, in which he says, "Technology will never replace great teachers, but in the hands of great teachers it's transformational."  I believe that.  We have a lot of great teachers at Estacado Middle School and I’m proud to work alongside them. In my free time, you will find me enjoying spending time with my family and pets, coaching a YMCA sports team, and serving in the Children’s Ministry at First Baptist Church Plainview where my husband, James, is the Children and Families Pastor.
