Background:  I am proud to be a Kemp Alumni who married my high school sweetheart. Both our children are Kemp Graduates. We are blessed with six grandchildren.   One grandchild is attending Kemp Intermediate, and our only grandson is attending the High School. I was an Aide, sponsored both J.V. and Varsity Cheerleaders, along with the Drill Team for several years at the Kemp High School.  I received a Bachelor's of Science Degree from the University of Texas at Tyler.  From 1999-2005,  I taught second and fourth grade at Malakoff Elementary.  In 2005, I returned to Kemp ISD, teaching seventh grade writing. The next year I taught seventh grade math and the last thirteen years eighth grade ELAR. I am proud to serve my community.  My goal is to have each student recognize his/her full potential.
