About Me

  • I'm a proud member of the fighting Texas Aggie Class of '80.  I received my bachelors degree in Education Curriculum and Instruction with certificates in Business, Social Studies and Driver's Education.  I began teaching at Stratford HS in 1980 and quickly became a Stratford Spartan.  Currently I am teaching Accounting I and II.  Over the past 37 years in Education, I have taught several Career and Technology classes, but I love teaching Accounting. I'm the Student Council Advisor, and in addition, I help sponsor Business Professionals of America club and assist with the Academy of Finance.
  • This is my 38th year in Education and all 38 years  have been at Stratford High School and I am so proud to be a Stratford Spartan!!
