About Me

Hey there! This is my 10th year teaching at MMS. I was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, grew up in the Houston area (Klein High School), attended Texas A&M University, and graduated from the University of Nebraska with a Bachelor's of Journalism in Advertising.

I have several hobbies including traveling, reading, and participating in sports. I love all academic subjects, but I really enjoy American History. I also coach football, basketball, track, and soccer. Go Eagles!
