About Me

I have lived in Kemp since 1992 after retiring from the United States Air Force after serving 21 years. I completed my Associates degree at Trinity Valley Community College. I completed both my BS and MS at the University of Texas at Tyler. Both of my boys went to school at Kemp. I am a member of the American Legion Post #310 as well as the American Legion Riders. I am also a member of the Patriot Guard Riders. (
I teach fourth grade Science, Social Studies, and Gifted and Talented at the Intermediate Campus. I am looking forward to my second year at the Intermediate and the GT program, of which I have a few ideas. I have worked with the district since @2003. I have taught third grade at the Primary Campus, seventh grade, and eighth grade science at the Junior High Campus and have been a Dyslexia Aide.
