    I was raised in Floydada, Texas and graduated from Floydada High. I attended Texas Tech University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science. I taught in Floydada for 18 years as a Life Skills teacher. In 2014, I began teaching in Plainview, TX at Estacado Middle School. I have two daughters, Faithe and Eden, who are my world. One is currently attending Wayland Baptist University and the other is finishing up High School. I am grateful to be a part of a wonderful faith family at Harvest Christian Fellowship and am a part of Bravehearts, a men’s Christian group. I am also a not so secret nerd, watching Marvel movies and Star Wars. May the force be with Estacado as we train and enlighten the minds of young padawans!

    I grew up in Hale Center, Texas.   My mother was a special education teacher and I knew that is what I wanted to do also. I started my career in education as a paraprofessional at Coronado middle school and worked there for 7 years. I went to Wayland Baptist University while working as a paraprofessional and graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in 2012 and my masters in 2016. After graduating, I worked for one year at Lakeside in 5th grade as the resource teacher. I then started at Estacado and have loved working here since! I have worked in inclusion and resource.  Outside of work, I love spending time with my husband, Vicente, and our 2 kids, Tate and Brooklyn. We enjoy being outside, watching movies together, playing with our cat, Lola, and spending time as a family!
