Background: I am finishing my first year working in Kemp ISD as the Director of Special Education, and I am so happy to be here. I started my career in education in 1989 after receiving my Bachelor's Degree from UT Tyler. I received my Master's Degree and Educational Diagnostician certification at UT Tyler in 1991. I obtained my Mid-management Certification in 2000 through UT Tyler. My love of learning continued, and lead me to a Masters Certification in Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation (MCCRR) through Abilene Christian University in 2013 and my EMT certification in 2015. My husband of 29 years, Joey, has always been a huge support throughout my 26 years in education, and in particular, special education. I have two sons, Taylor and Trevor, who are both in college. I am excited to be a Kemp Yellowjacket!!!
