 HELLO TIGERS!!!   I am extremely honored and blessed to be the counselor for the Class of 2018.  This is my fourth year at Spring Woods, and my 13th year in education.  I graduated from Kingwood High School, then went on to play softball for the University of Houston.  I graduated in August of 2004, with my Bachelors Degree in History and was teaching at Brenham High School that same month.  I spent 3 years teaching and coaching at Brenham, then made the move to Canyon Lake High School near New Braunfels in 2007.  I also taught and coached at Canyon Lake for 4 years and served as a counselor during my 5th year on campus. 

I absolutely love being a counselor here at Spring Woods and I am so excited to get to work with the AWESOME Class of 2018. Sophomore year flew by and 2018 will be here before we know it.  This webpage contains information on events and topics that are focused on the Class of 2018.  Please make sure that you check this website often so that you can access this important information.
