I’ve always wanted to change the world, I’ve only struggled with figuring out how to accomplish it. When I was eight years old, I decided I would be president of the United States. I thought I would become a lawyer and then begin figuring out my route to the White House. I never made it to law school and only found myself in the classroom through dumb luck. Wonderful, amazing, dumb luck.

To know me is to understand my sheer adoration of Footloose – the song and movie (1980s version, please)- and Dr. Pepper. I rarely watch T.V. but, if it’s on, I can’t pass up the train wreck that is reality T.V. My final interesting tidbit is that I am irrationally, uncontrollably terrified of birds. All shapes, all sizes. Just make sure I have about six feet between me and the feathered creatures at all times or else I am not responsible for any upended furniture or the colorful language that may ensue.
My husband, D, is my co-conspirator in efforts to change the world. My avenue is education, his is law enforcement. Together, we are working hard to raise two little people, Mo and D3, that we hope will also stand tall and work to make positive changes when they see injustice.
I currently work in a large suburban district outside of Houston, Texas serving the community as the Secondary Language Arts Coordinator. I am blessed to be surrounded by strong professionals who embrace innovation and vision. I am a fortunate girl hoping to pay it forward.
